Yes, this was actually a very good article summarizing the advantages/disadvantages of the major releases and explaining their rationale.
A very brief take-away: Canon, Nikon and Sony all released excellent cameras. 5DIII got the edge largely because of the range of improvements, including focus and because its excellent low-light performance was deemed more useful and significant than the high resolution of the D800: "...we felt strongly that the Canon produced the best balance across all imaging factors, with Low or better noise up to ISO 12,800, and still acceptable noise at ISO 25,600."
I found this assessment of the D800 very interesting: "Noise is Low or better only to ISO 800, and Unacceptable at ISO 12,800."
From everything I've read and heard about the 5DIII this sounds like a well-deserved honor.
I have them, after 12800iso the 5dmk3 is little bit better than d800 , same size and raw
at 6400iso d800 shows visible more details and the noise is on par with 5dmk3
why are they not mention the 14 stops DR at base iso?
Could it be that it is not that high in reality as it is in DxO's proprietary formula?
