Not at higher ISO's unfortunately IQ doesn't look like it's going to be much 'if any' better than the 5Dii.
The only difference I can see is more aggressive NR.

I was referring to the 5D2, since I have to compensate in PP for only being able to use the center AF point. It looks like that won't have to with the 5D3. Plenty of AF points. But now I am so used to using only the center AF point, I am not sure if I want 61 AF points anymore. IQ won't probably differ much. I already have seen the black dots in the 5D3 Canon samples. I'll wait for the RAW files for conclusions. I want to make sure the 5D3 shadows are much cleaner (shadow banding).

I'd have to wait for actual reviews and images before an initial impression. It looks interesting, but only if performance is good.

Looks nice, and should actually autofocus this time ;) Looking forward to seeing test shots.

Looks like it's still got it to me unfortunately...

I'm sorry but it just doesn't have that 500MPs. I'm gonna build my own perfect DSLR!

JUST KIDDING.
It's what I expected. I was kinda hoping for more fps, but whatever. Expensive? Yeah, but I'm not rushing out to order it right now. I'm gonna wait at least a year before I make a decision (if I feel I really need to upgrade from a crop to full frame body). I can be patient and see how it does in terms of performance. I'm hoping it has really good AF (with freakin' 61pts) and image quality.

I've only been in DSLR photography for a couple of years and I've spent that time slowly refining my system and lens choices to where I'm pretty happy where I am now. I DON'T "NEED" a full frame, but I'd "LIKE" one. The specs on it don't make me wanna jump over to Nikon either (I just don't wanna spend the time learning another system). Plus, I'm not printing poster-sized images, so 22mp is just fine for me (I do well enough with 18 right now anyway).

At $3,500 it makes more sense for me to have a 7D and a 5Dmk2 over this beast. It is just a bit more money and it gives me the flexibility of having the best of both worlds (tech and full frame) in certain situations.

Very valid point here, and a wider range of lens choices too.

Far too early to say. I shall wait for all the proper head to head reports with the D800 before deciding!

There is no compelling reason for me to upgrade from my 5Dii. The new revision is underwhelming. Canon is asleep at the wheel,iyam.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

I litterally just bought a II yesterday! The biggest upgrade I like in the III is the new AF system. But I guess I just saved $1400 by getting the II (ordered a LN condition from KEH for $2100).

The price seems a little high. For the price, I could purchase another 5DMII, and a wide angle L lens. I just wish it had more MP (eg, 36MP). I do not need the extra speed. Maybe the 5Dx will be announced soon. Then, I will consider it. Right now, my 5DMII is performing great.
