Here is a real Canon 1Ds Mark III shot in full.

Now look at the details in the eyes, hmmm. This was one of my portfolio shots in college first year in back in 2009. Shooting the eyes are important with this kind of photography. Tell me what you guys think.

The capture date wasn't set right on the camera. I was so happy to get this beast that I had forgotten to set it, lol.

Its a nice picture but...

I dont understand what you want us to see?  The picture is nice and the eyes are in focus.  Detail is ok.  My 10D still takes pictures like this.

You just keep telling yourself that, and you will eventually believe it!

I own a 20D and the detail won’t even come close to my 1Ds Mark III.

I'm thinking this guy is a spammer, posting shots that could be taken on anything, and in fact one of the shots was taken on something different to the OP's orginal claim of the 1Dsiii, odd.

Walter....read my post again

I did not claim my 10D took pictures as good as a 1Ds Mark III only that it took pictures as good as what was posted.  And yes it does.  Just stating a fact.  I am sure your 20D could do the same.

I was hoping you could notice the tonal range, plus a 10D will not get you a file size like this one.

Here is my 10D example

True file size is not same but still a good picture with plenty of detail.  I left it uncropped

@  Walter, thanks for getting my point. A 16bit sensor is always better, a 12 to 14 bit sensor will be limited in pperformance. The canon 1 D's mark iii is a 14 bit sensor camera, but it is very close in quality to the phase one DSLR, @nightman.

I think you made his point

There's a lot more detail in the eyes on the 1DsIII shot than this shot. You can clearly make out the blood vessels in the 1DsIII shot, so maybe even too much detail at 100%, but still very nice.

And for comparing detail, file size is critically important. Saying the 10D is as good as the 1Ds III for detail, except for file size, is like saying that, except for capacity, a 250GB hard drive from 2003 stores just as much information as a 1.5TB hard drive from 2008.

And yes, many great photos have been taken with both cameras, so detail is only one part of what makes the camera (and both have sufficient detail to record many things well), it's just that the 1DsIII has more.

Thanks for posting it.

I love seeing these early sample pics for new cameras. It shows us what we can expect when its finally released.

Im fed up seeing the non real shots, seeing this real shot makes a nice change

And you made my point

The reason you don't see blood vessels is because her eyes are not bloodshot.  But I am not trying to say my 10D is as good as a 1Ds Mark III only that my portrate shot is also very nice with plenty of detail for my 8x10 prints.

As to the storage analogy of course more information is good to have but I find my 250 gb hard drive can still hold a lot of information.

The point you made at the end is the heart of the matter in my opinion.  you said detail is only one part of what makes the camera and both have sufficient detail to record many things well.  That is my point as well, you just said it better than I did.

In conclusion let me confess that I have retired my 10D (gave it to my grandson) and purchased the 5d Mark III.  I did not do this because I could not take excellent pictures with my 10D but because I wanted the better autofocus, low light improvements and full frame perspective.  As to image quality there is not a lot of difference when printed 8x10.  Both cameras produce excellent pictures, I just have more keepers with the 5d Mark III.
