On Canon EOS 5D Mark III hands-on preview and video article (270 comments in total)

I am a Nikon user. I switched over when the D3s came out. Amazing camera. Now that both companies are introducing their boys, in my opinion. Canon won in the 1DX vs. D4 dogfight. Even as a Nikon user, the 1Dx really seems like a AWESOME camera. But Nikon seems to have won the D800 vs. 5D3 fight. Honestly, Even with that and being a Nikon user, And I love my Nikon, We really need to wait and see the REAL WORLD REVIEWS that were not done by Nikon or Canon sponsored photographers. I want to see the negative feedback on both cameras, or all 4 I should say. Though I must say not in canons favor, on their site the only high Iso pics are of a night sky, it really looked like they were using a pic to hide the noise. and why would the other high iso pics say coming soon, Do they need time to doctor them up first? I would not have wrote that. The d800 high iso pics at 36mp used real world scenes and looked pretty darn good. Tho, I am jealous of the new Canon flash!!

I think these forums are fun. Besides that, I am a Nikon user. I switched over when the D3s came out. Amazing camera. Now that both companies are introducing their boys, in my opinion.

DioCanon: this sounds like my dream camera!
I am glad I waited for this one! my 60D will be happy to be the back up camera of the 5DmIII and to share the same batteries and SDHC cards!

61 auto focus point!
22 mpx!
weather sealed!
dual card slot sd/cf!
6fps!
there are still people that just look at megapixels, I wonder if they use they photos for anything else but Facebook...?
and who thinks the above improvements are just minor ones go and get a Nikon, they know how to catch big fishes like you!

Actually Canon just copied Nikon in this situation. Nikon has always been the company to come out with lower megapixel, but hire quality ones. Canon modeled them selves after Nikon this time around. But from the images Ive have seen the D800 high Iso is pretty impressive with the added bonus of 36 monster pixels. Sounds pretty good to me.

Not biased to either company, having owned both, it just seems that canon just upgraded their 5d mark2, while Nikon came out with something much more exciting. I guess the tests will tell. Both have amazing autofocus, iso, but nikons iq is much more and the D800 is much cheaper. I have to say, I think Nikon won this one.

Photodog7: To make a unbiased comment due to the fact I like both systems, it just seems like a long wait only for this. It does not seem like canon really made a good move. On one note, they seemed to address a lot of improvements photographers were looking for, but It seems like the camera is only a small step in front of nikons d3s which will be replaced soon. Then canon is bragging about the pixel size of 7 microns, and about the fact that it is 1.3 microns bigger than the 1d mark 4 and .5 bigger than the 5d mark 2. Sad to say that even though it is a few less megapixels, the D3s has 8.5 micron size, which is much larger. I also feel they just abandon their sports shooters by making only a full frame model. It is really important to have the reach that a 1.3 sensor can provide. Sorry, don't want to upset anyone unless there is something I don't know, Trying to evaluate why this was worth the wait, Despite the fact yes there is SOME nice new features with the camera.

understood, but professional sports shooters like the extra lens range provided by the cropped sensor.
