It seems there have been a lot of threads lately trying to show the 5D3 has the same resolving power as the D800.  Not sure why....the D800 holds a 28% linear resolution advantage that is easily seen when good optics are used.  It equates to one extra print size....say 20x30 over 16x24 for the 5D3.

When I made my purchase decision to go with the Nikon over the Canon, I just cropped a 12x18 out of a 20x30 print and made my decision.  It was obvious in print the D800 had more resolving power.  We wont even mention the difference in DR.
