Try shooting at 25600 ISO and see the difference.... the 60D should show quite a bit of noi....... waitamminit
also: if you're shooting flowers at ISO 400 and seeing noise.... just what are you doing? Post more shots?
it appears to me that you are in the process of learning photography and that your focus has been on getting familiar with the tools. that is great and it sounds like you are starting to see what the 5d3 has to offer over previous models. it is very important to understand how to use your tools in order to get better at photography.
but that will only take you so far....
at a certain point you will maximize your understanding of how your camera and lenses work. it is at this point that separates the truly great professionals from the serious amateurs. understanding and identifying great light is the next step. once you start to understand what lighting conditions provide for really fantastic photography you will start to see that your gear is not the limiting factor. more often than not the greatest limiting factor is timing and opportunity. the light will dictate what you can and cannot do as well as if there is a truly great photograph to be had.
i only wanted to point that out because i got a sense from your posts that you were expecting the 5D3 to provide a significant improvement in your images through its technology alone. this is rarely the case as the best light will provide great photos regardless of the camera you are using (assuming there are capable hands operating that camera).
i hope you continue to make strides and enjoy your new camera! i do encourage you to start thinking more about different qualities of light and what settings are required to take fullest advantage of that light.
Here is a pic from the 5d3.
It is great. I just shot my wife on working on the laptop under a light with a dark background. I do like the shots better than the 60d. I guess my expectations where so high that I would just be able to point an shoot and if the dof, shutter speed, iso, exposure where right then I would have these photos that where like the ones Canon posts when a new camera comes out. I know I still have a lot to go with but there are a lot of little feautures I bought this for:
AF points being that there are more to manually select
being able to set the min shutter and iso for p modes (when the wife uses it)
more natural light indoor shots
image comparision during playback
ai servo 3 for when my wife and I run races and people can pass you at that last second
dual card slots
I do feel that when the raw conversions for lightroom finalize the pictures will be better. I also feel that when I add some primes I will know the camera better. I know this has way more than I will ever need but that was the point to get something I will not feel I will outgrow.
I basically outgrew the 60d for the simple fact that the iso is not as clean above 800-3200 and I know that the better I learn this camera then I can have those clean iso's. I also want to be able to shoot a stop above what I do now to retain my chosen dof and double my shutter speed with the active children hoping for less blurr. If the readers still think I should return this then please tell me since that is why I asked.
Bump the ISO up to 6400 and let me know if can notice any difference!
