Can you re-title the topic to VIDEO resolution comparison?

If it were poor electronics design that would show up in SNR tests, but, it doesn't. The 5D Mk III outscores the D800 in that and almost every area except DxOMark tested DR.
No it would not. SNR test is carried out at middle gray where the signal is not affected so much by read noise.
Same experience here with 5D2 with raw capture It is just a "normal" shoot of a model in black dress outdoor at ISO100.
The red colour noise is so visible on the black dress without noise reduction! Had to dialup NR in LR so much that some detail of the dress is lost to completely remove the color noise... Sigh... if Canon can't do it at ISO100, forget about those ISO800 shots!
It is such a basic requirement!
Consistent uniform 'noise' patterns point to data.
If new entry FF has all the capabilities of 5d2 + 5d3 sensor + AF somewhere between 5d2 and 5d3, then I'd like to see this an entry level FF at 2000$. I'm just afraid it would cost 2500$ and less features than 5d2 has. If there is only a better sensor, then I'm asking who this camera would be for?
So the best option for you would be a camera with ISO 50-800. It could be a niche market anyway.
I've already done it. Works fine for me.
Lucky you. So what's your answer to the question in topic?
Any one want to try commenting on the DR, high iso capabilities etc of a potential FF x-trans CMOS sensor?
The banding that only shows up in third party RAW converters, and not DPP?
Meh, I've shot ISO 3200 on the 7D, pushed 2 stops in the blacks and cropped to my tastes w/o any worries. Noise? Sure. Loss of detail? Sure. So what? Some of the best photographs aren't technically perfect.
