The conclusion still stands - it is a simple tradeoff - either you remove the noise and no detail is left (the way Canon does in jpeg) or you choose detail AND accept an INSANE amount of noise in the red (see the red fabric right under the green) nothing new.

Think about it, the jpeg engine in the 5D3 is very, very good - it is not like Canon want is reds to look bad - it is because there is SOOO much noise to remove in the reds

There is about the same amount of noise in the red channel of the 5D3 as there is in the D800. Go look at the DPR raw samples - they show the difference to be small and probably ever so slightly in favour of the 5D3.
