Here I up-scaled the 5D Mark III to the same resolution as the D800 using the normal bicubic algorithm. For some reason my raw converter made the 5D Mark III look a little more contrasty. For the sake of keeping all the settings similar, I used the same unsharp mask and contrast and white balance settings for both images. I used the landscape "style" (I'm using DXO Optics 7) to bring out the greens a bit. The Canon looks a bit more washed out in the sky, perhaps due to smaller DR?

Here is the upscaled 5D Mark III


And here is the D800:


Thanks for making these raws available. This is the first time I've played with a D800E file. Very nice
