UK's latest issue of Digital Photographer did a head to head comparison between D800 vs 5D3. They declared 5D3 superior usability, extremely athletic AF system, amazing color accuracy & DR at ISO 1600 and above a undisputed winner of this head to head comparison. They also prefered the overall IQ of 5D3 over the D800. Finally, a professional tester getting their exposures right on site and correcting on the fly. The OP is right, Canon did gave the Nikon a good old butt whopping........this AF ass whopping will be for a very long looooong time, why, because Nikon compromise their AF sensitivity by going F8. Nikon was no answer for 1DX and 1DC, the up coming 40+ mp body is getting clock at 8 fps, the jack of all trade in 5D3 is the champion(see above), 7D's lastest AF firmware tweak and added buffer will extend its APS-C crown for the next 3 years. The 60D and the rebel family is out specting and outselling the Nikon equivalents. And finally, their are no G1X and EOS M Nikon equivalents in high ISO performance. Sony can only do so much.......so go figure!
