Very true

I think the problem with DxO's figures is that they are sharpness measurements, not resolution measurements. And this causes a lot of confusion - particularly in these forums.

The upshot of that article is that, although the 5D3 resolves less, at the same time it delivers sharper images, and as such, the "perceived resolution" is quite similar.

In fact, even DxO mix-up the terms in that article, but you'll notice that they are talking about sharpness, not resolution. And this thread is mis-named along the same lines. It really should be titled ... "Interesting article on DxO about 5D III and D800 sharpness"  

Pretty good summation.
