4.8 MB JPEG (5616 x 3744)
3.1MB JPEG (3,888 x 2,592)

Taking the JPEG processing out of the equation shows far more clearly the resolution difference between Canon's two flagship professional SLRs, but you need to be really pushing the files to high enlargement factors for it to matter.

I bought my 1D Mark III Used. I bought it soupy for the purpose of Wave Photography. I love the 10fps. So clutch. Only thing I am not crazy about is the low megapixle. 10 mp is pretty low, Ie, GoPro hero 3 silvers are 11 mp and blacks are 12. They are only 300.
