So if the native ISO is 2 stops higher then the D800s, what do we think this means in practice?
really? what do you think it means? we can take cleaner pictures is lower light.

I'd guess he means what do you think it will mean to ISO performance at the settings the D800 and the 5D mk3 will share.

Yeah I was meaning in a real world scenario with images scaled to the same res, what kind of advantage can we hope for/expect? I know it's still speculation at this stage....

Canon might have put up to 25600 as the native ISO as marketing gimmick, and it sucks - but maybe not :)

Canon seemed to do a great job keeping this whole release under wraps until the very last minute, and even the "highly credible" sources were wrong on the February release date.  Most of these specs have been floating around long enough that almost anyone in the Canon camp is familiar with them.  Isn't it still a possibility at this point that some of the specs may be wrong or entirely missing, we won't know for sure what this camera is capable of until after the event.

Not in all pictures, I haven't said that. In some situations, it just happens to be all the situations that would give you good shots. .

sorry that is complete nonsense... if that would be true it would be all over the internet and nobody would buy that camera.

How about "AF point-linked spot metering" ??
I really hope they don't cripple this again!!
That's something I ask too; imperative !

Anybody noted the mention INTELLIGENT viewfinder?
THIS is the groundbreaking feature that will shake the industry that they were talking about.
I know that this is not a inedited technology but I bet that i will have nothing to do with what have been done in the past!!
The optical TTL focus IS the feature that will hurt Nikon the most.
Buy shares now....

Relax, don't get too excited. It's just like the VF on the 7D & 1Dx, it just means that it has an LCD overlay on the focusing screen.

After years of ignorant review sites bashing of practically no weather sealing in the mkII (even though there are lots of seals used) it is a given that the mkIII will have 7D or better weather sealing - I do not even need to read it anywhere..  8)

Nikon - D700 - D300s : 2 Ns

Dear Canon,

Thank you so much. If this spec list turns out to be true it leaves me wanting nothing else in my next camera. All I basically wanted was the 5DII with a better AF system. And you delivered more than I could have expected with the 61 point. A new sensor is great and hopefully contains some 1Dx technology. I'm also pleased with 6fps.

Nothing to complain about.

How on earth can anyone tell this from a spec list? It could mean that  the 5D MkIII sensor is  two whole stops more sensitive than the D800, or it could just be marketing blah blah.  The proof of the pudding is in the eating and I think that we'll have to wait a few more weeks/months yet for the side by side comparisons, my guess is that you may get an extra stop.

All right people. I really need an honest opinion here. I was shooting Nikon D5100 up till now and was hoping to upgrade to full frame by the end of this year.
To begin with, I had both the D800 and the 5D Mark 3 on my wish list. I mean I really don't have a huge investment in terms of the lenses, and I'll always get some return when I sell of my present gear (In case I decide to go with canon).
I need opinion on this because if I do go with canon on the mark 3, then i'll also get L lenses, and the investment then is going to be substantial. So its going to be a long term commitment. And the tech guide on the D800 kinda scared me a bit with all the chatter involving image blur with the slightest movement because of the "high resolution". And I'm also not sure about its iso performance in comparison to the D700.
Suggestions please guys..?? What would be a better camera for me. I mean we cant really say much until both the cameras are out and have been thoroughly reviewed. But going by the spec list...?? Which way should I go..??
