Indeed - One of the main reasons I jumped from the 5DII to 5DIII is to enable better shots above ISO 3200, using raw, and my results are better indeed so far. ISO 12800 I don't avoid anymore.

Sure the DXOMARK shows a 2293, but if you look more closely (and read) you will see

"Canon EOS 5D Mark III vs 5D Mark II (DR): ½ Stop better at ISO 3,200, 1 Stop at ISO 12,800"

This means 12,800 on the 5D3 looks like 6,400 on the 5D2. That's a REALLY big deal to me. Just wish more people would talk about this instead of worrying about ISO 100.
