IMHO, the 5D MKIII has the best colors and contrast overall.
Looks like a cell phone picture.
This picture is the best MKIII sample so far. Nice sky colors. I`d like to see some clouds to check the details....
I think everyone is judging that the D800 is cleary better than Canon because of this dpreview samples and DXO Mark. They should take the very same pictures with both so we can compare. There is no picture in the MKIII samples that we can check the DR of this camera. The DXO Mark looks questionable to me. D800 2800 points in lowlight vs 1800 on 5DMKII?
Please tell us more about your experience on both cameras. What about the dynamic rage? There is no MKIII clouds picture sample. Are they at least comparable?
Those D800 samples, to my eye, seems really great ( colors, resolution, DR ). I have a 5DMKIII on pre-order, shipping on April 2nd and I have no EF lenses. There is some review sites that are bashing at the new 5D, even in video mode ( eoshd.com ). The MKIII samples seems duller and a bit softer ( Is it the lens? ), and I am afraid of cancelling the pre-order and not getting either camera when I arrive in USA on May 1st. Do you guys think they will have both cameras in stock a month from now?
