Just seeing the sample images (and I'm not giving conclusion) I admit.

All the sample I've seen from the 5D3 looks way too soft. It can be 2 things : First is post prod NR. Second is 5D3 NR. If It's the 5D3 NR they use it wayyyy too much.
Ok nice, you see no noise at 1600 ISO or even 6400 but it ruin the quality.

It does exactly the same as Neat Video.

Second, as I look to the image, it look photoshoped! In some of them I can see clearly bad photoshop!
I think that we really have to wait unofficial pictures.

(sorry for my english ^^)

I'm confused.....are you saying there are side-by-side comparisons of the two cameras, or are you comparing the images released by Nikon and Canon? If the later, then so what? until you can look at the same scene photographed by both cameras, using simliar lenses, and simliar post-processing corrections, any comparison is kinda meaningless.

Totally agree, also need the original RAW images without any NR.  I am totally surprised that Canon and Nikon fail miserably at providing such information and that the photographic community lets them get away with murder and misinformation.

Hi, a bit off topic but I didn’t want to start a new just for this. There was a post and link given at some point in the mêlée pre 02/03 to a web site where the guy compared Canon & Nikon sensors when the same image is pushed. Was a photo looking out a window so very high DR. Can anyone help me with that link again please?

Sometimes it is not necessary to see the same image side by side to compare. That is necessary only when the difference is small.
In this case the difference is so obvious that there is no need to put the images side by side, IMHO.

yep. I heve already post some my thoughts about those samples in other topic, but now i realize that there is a topic about it so...

I am a canon user from 1 year. I switched from Nikon. Bad decision-YES!. I waited for 5d3 in order to made my final decsion to stay or go away from Canon.

Speaking about the main topic...

When I firstly saw a 5d3 sample I was in shock-how is it possible? It looks like crap from good high mpix compact camera, not a 3500$ dlsr. There is no sharpness at all. Everything looks crappy and very soft, even photos developed from Raws (animal photo). Every photo looks like  after strong in camera pp. Please take a closer look on eyebrows, lashes, eyes, hair. Guys-it's drama. Than I took a look on D800 (nor E) samples-amazing. I am not a tech guys, but photographer, but from I have seen the decision is obvious and clear. I think thats not about resolution, it's about whole things related with image processing and sensor. 5d3 photos lacs details and sharpness, they look strange in 100% view. What is strange also is that I think that photos from my 5d2 looks better in terms of sharpness and detail. I am frustrated due to being already invested in Canon gear, but I know I will probably sell me lens and switch back to Nikon even losing some money. I would be very happy to see other point of views, especially from more advanced or professional photographers.

Same opinion here. Followed by marketing, people are happy because new AF, but no one took a look at samples . It's drama for me. There is nothing to compare with D800. I waited for 5D3, having a 5 lens from Canon, but now I decided to sell it and switch, unfortunately. Shame for Canon in my opinion.

Would suggest you wait for the non"Official" photos before you are able to make a reasonable comparison. These marketing guys ain't no photographers!

In this image you can see the details of the models leg http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/samples/eos5dmk3/downloads/08.jpg

Yeah but the issue here is sharpness... and they seem to be pretty sharp.
