D800 will do 5.9 FPS @ 25 MP which is higher resolution and the same frame rate as the 5DM3. Far superior DR as well. That is with the grip (which you can buy with the price difference between a D800 and 5DM3, or use one of the $50 alternatives and save $450), 5FPS without.

The frame rate argument is largely moot.

Just sayin ;).


FX 36 MP & 5:4 crop 30 MP = 4fps
1.2 crop 25MP = 5fps

Sure, but the '5 FPS' with the grip is actually 5.9 FPS in practice. 5FPS without grip, which is pretty useful.

If I'm reading what you say correctly 1.2 crop with the grip & AA batteries measures at 5.9 fps even though the info screen on the camera shows 5fps ?
