Re: How does this compare to the 1D Mark 3 at 3200?

Its really hard to answer this because we don't know what conditions the picture was taken in. My Mark III does outstanding at 3200, and I shoot at 6400 regularly. Take a look at my gallery and most of my recent volleyball is 6400, and the football and some of the soccer is as well. But this 5D goes two notches better. The problem is that noise is very much effected by the quality and quantity of the light. This guy was shooting inside a well lit area at f/1.4, so it was probably exposed well. When shooting in very low light, often you are needing to under expose a little to get shutter speed, even at high ISO. But being a Mark III owner, I'll say that I'm very impressed with these shots. I wish the body had decent speed and AF and I'd get one for sports.
