The D600 is better than the 5DIII and D800, better visible at 25600 iso.

and the number of photographers that regularly shoot at 25600 is what exactly?

i've seen the argument go along the following lines:

a car whose top speed is 190mph is likely to perform better at 80 mph than a car whose top speed is 120 mph. therefore a camera whose 25600 performance is better than that of another camera is lilkely to have the better, say, iso 200 performance. but that argument is nonsense - 25600 (and even much lower speeds, down to say 6400) are not used regularly . so stop using high iso comparisons in an effort to demonstrate how the camera might perform at lower iso's. just concentrate on comparing the 'real-world' iso level output

but i suppose folks will always want some sort of yardstick with which to beat the competition - even if that yardstick is irrelevant to 99% of users
