drjlo,

That's EXACTLY what I was talking about.  Perfect example.  I'll try to do similar shots with both cameras this weekend.

You're right.  Except the photos look different.  They are lighted differently, when they all said exposure was the same, the 5D3 registered 10,000 vs. 6400 and lo and behold, it was brighter.  I don't know why, but it appears as though the 1D bodies are metering more accurately.  I'm not sure if Canon is putting some technology in the 1D bodies that they are NOT putting in the 5D bodies, or what.  You're right though, 6400 vs. 10,000 is not a full stop.  I'm just pointing out that there is a difference.

Sorry, I've been dealing with real smartass posts on another forum.  My apologies, really. 

Again, sorry, I'll provide the information you ask:

For the overexposure, it was very interesting.  I set both cameras to auto ISO, f/8, 1/30s, and the 5D3 read 10,000 for a +2EC whereas the 1DX read ISO 6400 for the +2EC.  This is very, very fascinating to me.  Do you know what it means?  I'm not sure.

Why does ISO 6400 on the 1DX read +2EC but it takes ISO 10,000 on the 5D3 to read +2EC?

That is very interesting.

The D800 fans say how much more they can push the shadows - perhaps we are seeing that against the 5DIII that is true - but against the 1DX that may not be true or not so obvious in the field. +2 is as much as I would expect.

What's interesting too, is that I can "fix" the 1DX image very easily, whereas the 5D3 I cannot do so that easily.  Notice how slightly "darker" the 1D bodies expose vs. the 5D3, which leads me to believe at least better metering accuracy.  Whether this means much in the field I doubt, especially for outdoor shots.

Let me first add these 1Ds3 and 1D4 photos.  I couldn't push the 1Ds3 much, due to max ISO value, but I could the 1D4, which again, did not fall apart.

The 1DX and 1D4 don't fall apart and clearly the 5D3 does.  Isn't that what it looks like?

"Notice the difference between what the 5D3 says and what the 1DX says:"
 
Hmm, "says" what, where?

Do you have something to contribute?  Or are you just bored and lonely?

I then purposefully overexposed to +2 EC.  Notice the difference between what the 5D3 says and what the 1DX says:

Ok, I went down and did the FIRST test for EXPOSURE ONLY.  I set up the same conditions, 105mm, f/8, 1/100s.  The 5D3 read the correct exposure at ISO 6400.  The 1DX gave the correct exposure at ISO 5000.  I shot with the camera set to Fluorescent WB.

Brian, I think there is a real problem here.  I just got home and am going to take all 3 cameras downstairs and do some fluorescent lighting shooting.  Be back shortly  8)

You should try the 300f4L with the canon 2x tc to give 600 f8 780 full frame equivalent its not a bad combo on a 1d af is respectable with the center point too you just need lots of light

I've been seriously considering replacing my 7D with a 1DIV.  It's less than half the cost of a 500/4 II to put on the 1D X, and even though a gripped 7D won't go for much on the used market, what I'd get for it, added to the cash on hand in my gear fund, would cover an LN-/EX+ 1DIV...

That actually would be the best replacement purchase scenario I can imagine.  The 1D4 for the 7D would be incredibly smart and worthwhile.  Not that the 7D is a bad camera, it's just you get the incredible features of the 1D4 along with the 1.3x factor.  That's one of the main reasons the 1D4 is in my kit.  I like that crop factor and 1D body metering capabilities.

Well well well.  In my quest for proper testing among the 3 various cameras, I have had to consider a 4th, the 1Ds Mark III and I'll share why.  A problem was found with the 5D Mark III.  It could be a serious problem, and I have confirmation from several other photographers.  Daytime, ISO 50-400, both the 5D3 and 1Ds3 are comparable.  In fact, after post processing, yes the 5D3 looks just a little better.  Now go shoot with the 5D3 under a tree in the shade, or indoors in tungsten and fluorescent lighting, and now you have green hues to the shadows and/or areas around highlights.  I have some photos I'm going to share.  This is a prominent problem if you examine my photos and another photographer's photos.  I have many of them from both bodies I own. 

Now, take the 1DX.  You don't see this, nor do you in the 1D4 or 1Ds3.  Seems a slight color accuracy problem with the 5D Mark III.  It is also very difficult to get rid of these hues in post processing as I thought it was simply the white balance being slightly off.  It isn't.  You cannot adjust color temperature to get rid of the problem.  The 1D bodies are not showing this effect. 

I'll have some photos I'd like you to look at and evaluate.  What this may mean is that the 5D Mark III is a much, much better daylight camera despite the high ISO capabilities than a low-light camera regarding color accuracy.  Time will tell.

Didn't brian from the digital picture .com say he had his shutter replaced 3 times on his ds mk3

Yes but it was the earliest releases.  Canon fixed the problem a year after the 1Ds3 was released.  Anything after the first batch shouldn't have the issue.  But, who knows if you have the 1st, 2nd, 80th batch?

1903
How about a 1Ds3 with the ISO capabilities?  :)

I think the big points that are being left out in the analysis or the superior metering and color accuracy of the 1DX over other cameras.  That goes a long way.  Take a 1DX and 5D3 in fluorescent lighting and you'll see exactly what I mean.

1905
True but the point I was getting at is Bosman is saying replace APS-C with APS-H because a bigger sensor is better and he is right, therefore Fullframe is better than APS-H because it is bigger.  I think the real problem here is that Canon should have put 36MP into the 5D Mark III then you would have the best of both, fullframe sensor with the ability to crop to APS-H or APS-C in post without the loss of pixel density.

A 7dII with a ff sensor would be a 5DIII

Except your're missing a boatload of features and improvements.  So, not really Brian.  If you say that, then you're simply saying all else is equal between the 7D and 5D3 except the sensor.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.
