Finally... Nikon releases their version of the 5d2....but with very good AF.  Now, I want to see the ISO performance.
If it equals the D700...likely imo...that would be a success.  And if the version w/AA filter is $3k as rumored vs $4k w/o AA...it will be quite the camera.

Any thoughts on why the camera w/o the AA filter would be more expensive?  More chip processing or complex algo?

Couple of things come to mind: Post production effort to remove AA filter or remove from the line for special handling. That alone is not worth $1k premium, the other reason is, because the Market really wants it and will pay that premium happily. Nikon likes to play on the "exclusive"...
EOS-5D Mk.iii 
Sigma 24-105mm F4 ART; EF 70-200 F/2.8L Mk.II; EF 100mm L F/2.8 IS Macro, 50mm F/1.8ii;  TC's 2x Mk.iii; 1.4x Mk.iii

It's funny... on the Nikon boards you hear quite a few people saying things like "I need to hurry up and get the D700 before it's too late/I'm afraid that the D800 is going to suck."

I have NEVER seen a post saying "I better hurry up and get a 5D2 because the 5D3 is going to suck."

Just sayin....

If the sample is true than the new D800 will destroy the 5Dmk3 ( if the 5d will be a 22MP camera), even if canon will have 1 sop better ISO;  14 MP advantage will make a huge difference.

Hope Canon will go for the 28-32 MP sensor.

Had a Nikon user tell me yesterday that she doesn't like the new cameras because they haven't got the AF motors in the body - so she is staying on the D90.

Yes, i had a look at that picture as well.

I can't help thinking something is wrong about it - it just doesn't strike me as an image you would be using to portray a state of the art new release - especially if it trying to demonstrate a new 36mp sensor.

To have been taken last April - that would imply that Nikon do not have such a robust NDA as Canon...

I think we are going to see two different bodies from Canon and 5d mk3 is not  intended to be a competitor to d800. Perhaps a late Feb 5D x or mk3 and a high mp 3D around Photokina?

sounds plausible to have a 22MP 5DX with 7.5 - 8 fps ( 5dMK2 and 7D) with very good ISO performance and a say a 3D high resolution 32MP camera (for studio use)...

Why would you say that based on that picture?  Unless you are into really large print, you will not see much different between 22MP and 36MP.  You will see a big difference however in the better ISO performance from a 5DmkIII for the every day use (hopefully anyway). 
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

I agree completely. I don't want any more pixels over 22MP.  I do however see the need for low ISO.  Let Nikon have their high res sensor.
