Archangel_GRE: Well in my eyes the 5D MK III, does a much better job in terms of noise suppression, edge definition and contrast detail.
That is clearly visible when compared the shadowed parts of the photo.
It also looks better than the 5D MK II.
Canon kept the Megapixel count almost as previous and indeed improve image quality compared to 5D MK II.
It looks like that it wasn't such a good idea for the D800 to climb-up to 36MP.

@ Adler1970
What happens to small sensors when you raise the Megapixels, also happens to FF when you raise the Megapixel.

The D800 has a high pixel count sensor, but the denoising algorithms, in order to keep detail in the photo are weaker.
Of course Nikon could make those algorithms stronger, but then the photo wouldn't keep enough detail, so things had to be balanced somewhere between which was the right move.

While Nikon went for the Megapixels with the cost of noise, weak contrast and softer edges, Canon improved an already good model at almost the same Megapixel count.

I do have 11 DSLRs, 6 of them are Canon, 5 of them are Nikon and I do my job perfectly with all of them.
It is not the camera, it is the person behind the camera.
I'm not a pixel peeper person, but if I must be one, then in this specific comparison the 5D MKIII image results look better and form the 5D MKII and from the D800.

No comments for Sony, really!. Almost "plastic" photos.

"Internal System Error" ?

Not a so forgivable mistake for these anticipated models and not a smart move - announcement from Nikon.
They should have been more careful from the beginning for such a big company and they should seriously consider with which new models on the Canon side they need to compete.

"Nikon will be honouring the original prices to retailers on all customer pre-orders placed before March 24th 2012."

That is even funniest that the "Internal System Error".
It is like dividing buyers to those who were lucky and placed pre-orders and those that are unlucky from March 24th and on.

I think they should leave the prices as is in the specific region and pay the price of not being very careful from the beginning.
Usually the mistakes are paid from those who do them and not by third party people.

I do own Canons and Nikons, so there is not even a hint of brand bias on me.
