On Just Posted: Canon EOS 5D Mark III review news story (706 comments in total)

I find it silly to give such a complex instrument an overall score - and even sillier to put any importance on that figure.

For example, I do a lot of photography in concerts. For me the reduced shutter noise of the 5D Mk III is most important, wheras I don't need more than 3 frames/sec. A sports photographer won't care about the noise, but will want 10 frames/sec.

I would also challenge the claims of many commentators here that dpreview favoured the Canon. Virtually all other independent tests done on comparing those two cameras give Canon a big advantage in the high ISO range department. And that's also my finding after comparing both cameras myself.
Needless to say, you only shoot Raw with a machine like that.
