Being that I owned both, and shot hundreds of thousand of images with them, cropping the 5D3 still looks better then the 1DIII. The 5DIII still has more resolution. At ISO 100 its harder to tell, but at ISO 800 and over, MAJOR.

I shot about 120K with my 1DIII, and over 200K with my 1DII. I am about at 150K between my 5DII(which I sold) and my 5DIIs.

On a 8x10 print. NO DIFFERENCE. On a 16x20, you see it. Anything bigger, you really see it..

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.

If there's typos, you can be sure I used my iPhone.

Without knowing how you post process and print it's difficult to comment.  Are you trying to up res files from the 1D3 when printing large and if so by how much and by what method?
