Just posted: Canon EOS 5D Mark III studio samples. We've borrowed a production 5D Mark 3 and have been painstakingly shooting our standard test scene with it. Although they're very different cameras, we suspect some people will want to compare the 5D3 to Nikon's D800, which you'll now be able to do from any version of the comparison tool. You can also download the Raw files to process, print or examine in minute detail.

These test shots are also available from other reviews and the standalone tool, which can be accessed via the 'Review Comparison Tool' link in the Reviews menu on any page of the site.

looking at raw 6400 the d800 is unbeatable, even before down sizing to Canons 22 mp

So I guess the D800 fans will laugh at the Nikon D4's measly 16.2 megapixels too, then...

I think the D800 has a bit more detail in Raw but the MKIII has better iso performance.

This thread is going to be long - I'll go and get some popcorn

Until they fix the links (matter of minutes probably) go through here: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/studio-compare

Outstanding jpeg colours and the RAW is wonderful.

It is indeed, but not any better than D800, just take a look:

Nikon definitely has more details in letters.
BTW I'm former pentax user, now is waiting for M10. And I hope it will use this 36Mp sensor.
