I agree the price is a little steep...

...but it's otherwise as close to a perfect camera as I could imagine. I don't imagine, for anything less than the utmost shot discipline, the detail difference between 22 and 36MP is going to be tremendous. 21MP is more than enough for my handheld shooting style. Indeed, the only obvious feature from the D800 that I wish Canon would implement is the 5:4 image area. I really loved being able to compose and shoot for those proportions in-camera. So, if the 5D III can deliver on the promise of lower noise and expanded DR, as well as a more flexible and precise AF system, I'll be very happy with it.

Except for the price.

First it will be 22.3 MP sensor not much from 21 MP.

Second it is $3500.00.

Nikon D800 - 36 MP for $3000.00 much better Focusing then MKII we do not know about MKIII.

What is your opinion?
