Re: My findings are...

No one can on the same sized print.  (within reason on the print.

But on a 16x20, I can tell the differance between my 1DIII and my 5DIII very easy. And my old 20x24 on my 1DII looks horrible compared to the same type of print from my 5DIII.

If anyone thinks that they could ever tell the difference between my 1Dx and my 5D3 by spotting the extra 4mp from prints of any size, I would bet my pants they're mistaken.

sure, but there's the crop factor there that's playing a bigger role. I'll bet if you cropped the 5d3 image to the same magnification as the 1d3, then you would be hard pressed to tell any difference, at any price to size.
