It also drastically suffers low-light capability from the articles I read. I think Canon is smart enough not to push technology to where it isn't ready to go. I feel like the 5DIII will hover around 25MP, they'll change the AF system and improve the low light capabilities. They might even go to the 18mp sensor of the 1D X. But I would be shocked if they followed Nikons footsteps, and IQ suffered as a whole. Remember that MPs are only one small part of the equation in Image Quality.

I'll be honest it, D800 sounds pretty awesome. I don't like the moniker of low-light and MP. When the 5D Mark II came out, it doubled MP and it's noise performance was better than it's predecessor.

IT does sound like the D800 is suffering in the IQ department for low-light from Engadget's article though.

Being a Wedding Photographer I guess I have to put stock into that!

But I'm sure landscape and studio artists would love it.

Imagine the flexibility to crop.

Fair points gentlemen, and I probably will not get a 5D at 36MP it that's what's released. Everyone is different and I guess I have very specific requirements. I want 18 to 24MP in full frame, very solid body (aka EOS 3), excellent low light, and a half decent AF system. High FPS not required. That's all!

This is gonna sound strange, but you are pretty closely describing the D700.

Which is what all Nikonions use to say. They would stick with D700 for low light.

If the so called "flagship" model has always been the 1D series and the 1Dx already announced at 18Mp I don't see why Canon would release the 5D3 with 30+Mp, AF,ISO and fps of the 1Dx and then charge less than they are going to for the 1Dx. It just doesn't make good business sense to bring out a new, better specced camera than the 1Dx and make it cheaper, which traditionally the 5D series has always been less than the 1D series.

I agree, looking at the exif (shot taken with the D800E), they're nothing special.

I thought the detail and dynamic range on the first one (the library) are very good. Maybe not jaw-dropping but definitely eye-catching.

I have to be honest, this is the first Nikon ever that has even raised my interest level. The spec represents a good mix of what I am looking for in a camera.

I'd agree. It would be best if it uses 1dx's cmos:)
