Re: You are not in the same league as Legion5


Right you are. I hadn't looked so closely at the colour noise since that wasn't the purpose of my post. But yeah, I too see slightly more colour artefacts (mostly blue) in the Nikon shot. Good call.

I suppose it all depends what you're looking for. Personally, I find that the additional texture details in the D800 shots really make prints look fantastic. To each their own.

If your saying that D800 ISO6400/12800 is noisier than the 5DIII at ISO3200, therefore the 5DIII is better in low light, well, that's just stupid. Your statement makes no sense

No, not what I'm saying. There is a comparison with BOTH at ISO 3200 (green bottle tops) and yes, I definitely see color noise at what would be considered a rather moderate ISO,. D800 at 6400 even more so, not so much with the Canon.
