When compared with high ISO raw, D600 is obviously better than 5D3, especially at very high ISO. 5D3 is just a machine which is just good at washing jpg details.
Kudos to Nikon.
DPReview has changed now. I am very disappointed at the biased 5D3 review. DPR lost their credit at all. I start reading DPR since 2007 and it has been my favourite photog site until 2012. D800 win in too many ways:
- much higher pixel- equal ISO performance (when resized)- world leading DR- 1.2 / 1.5 crop- support DX lenses- faster shutter lag (0.042 vs 0.059)- -2 EV focus points (all points!)- EV focus up to +19 (5D3 only up to +18)- focus up to f/8 (11 points)- better body built- more shutter count life (200K vs 150k)- metal shutter room (5D3 is plastic)- internal flash- support wireless flash- higher flash sync (1/250 vs 1/200)- focus assist light- timelapse video- auto ISO based on lens mm- USB 3.0- priced lower
The last honest version DPR wrote is the 50D. Perhaps it is telling too true, as I commercial site, DPR no longer wants to make Canon angry, so that produced such a disappointing 5D3 review.
No longer trust DPR any more. Good bye and missed Phil
