I have 5Diii and love it. Those above are replies for the critics: touch the reality before opening the mouths!
I have pics that taken in ambient light of a church with 5DMKiii @ around ISO 20000 (I used Auto ISO in M mode). They are usable in 4x6 format. My friend with D800 was there but couldnt do that. As far as DxOMark said, D800 is the top of FF camera. Can other Nikons do that? LOL.I encourage everyone to let Canon know of your disappointment with their recent sensor performance (compared to the competition). http://usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer
Thanks for the link. I let them know how thrilled I am with the 1D X sensor performance. Acceptable ISO 12800, and 25600 usable at need...simply awesome!!
Thanks! Neuro.People talking a bout B&W and Hoya. I use Tiffens and Canons, are they good, Neuro?
Not as good as B+W and the high end Hoya filters. Canon UV are actually OEM'd by Tiffen. I wouldn't use them.
Regardless of how good the 1DX sensor is, it is still slightly behind the Nikon D4:Take another look at http://www.imaging-resource.com/IMCOMP/COMPS01.HTM
"The performance of the two cameras is similar, but from ISO 6400 upwards the Nikon D4 is the winner by a little margin: I'd say that it has about 0.5 stop better high ISO performance than the 1DX; the D4 shows a little more noise and it has a more easy to remove, fine granulated noise."
