Cathus has given you some good leads. But as he said, you will be paying a heavy premium to be one of the first to invest in the Canon 5D Mk111, or it may possibly be named the Canon 6D. The 5D mark11 is still a great full frame camera. It's possible it's replacement will have a slighlty smaller imaging sensor but with a greater fps rating. It's video capabilities may also possibly be enhanced offering 60fps at full HD, but is that likely to be a deal breaker for you if video is not your no. 1 priority? The fact that many leading videographers have adopted the 5d mk11 should assure that this camera body is essentialy a high spec still frame imaging device but with the added bonus of excellent video capability.
So if budget is a problem, get the 60D but with the full frame compatible lenses. If budget isn't an issue, get the 5d mk11 with the full frame lenses you itemised, and if 6 months down the line you want it's successor, then sell the 5d mk11 and get the new camera body. Chances are you'll be so involved with the 5d mk11 you won't have the time to look at anything else!
