In all seriousness, I have never seen ISO1600 on a 5D better the
1DSMIII.

For that matter, even the 1DSMII.

What you'll notice is the 1Ds3 with newer firmware is obviously removing the color noise that the 5D isn't. The 5D has great detail at iso3200 compared to the 1Ds3. See how the words Red, Blue, etc. are much sharper from in the 5D image compared to the 1Ds3 along with the resolution chart and there is sharp detail in the black box as well.

I'm surprised to see Canon following suit after nikon to remove every spec of color noise from high iso images which seriously robs the image of detail. Even Phil stated in his a700 report that the 40D had recorded better resolution at high iso than the d300 which has 2 more MP.
