Use CS5 and the Adobe Camera RAW 6.7 Beta.

I've done my share of criticizing Canon lately, and have the smites to show for it, but I don't understand what the whining is about. The sharpness of the raw files compare favorably to my 5DC and 1DsIII. Hit it with a quick unsharp mask, and the images are tack sharp. As others have suggested, if the jpegs are too soft for your fancy, then crank up the in camera sharpening.

Anyone know when Lightroom 4 is likely to get the upgrade for this? I was hoping the production release would handle these files right out of the gate, but it appears not to :(

Agree.
I am also very happy with the RAW's after doing some unsharp mask
I read only whining topics....

I guess we are the only two who are going to buy the 5D Mark III  ;)

Of course RAW files should be sharper. people who think different has no idea about that. Some people will buy everything because it's new. That's why producers don't care. There is some issue with new sensor for sure, I also have canon gear but I  am not a fanboy of any gear and can give a honest opinion. Think that Canon focus towards software and digic which is really bad idea as many can see on provided samples. Of course it's ok for people who had a compact cameras before but for dslr users it's really a joke at ISO 100.

Then my 1ds mark III was also a joke.
And my current 1d mark iv.

I think you are a joke.

Dear Martin,

Long time lurker here. I was not planning on registering but I simply could not take any more of your little show. I have been taking notice of your consistent behavior throughout several topics and just decided to skim through your posts and oh, boy... You began, months before 5DM3 was released, complaining about this and that, how you used to be a Nikon-guy a year ago and were seriously contemplating going back, and you go on to complain about leaked 5D specs, and when 5D comes out, you complain a little bit more, followed by further complaints about sample images. Each time with a definitive statement on how that is it and you are certainly switching back to Nikon. "I know it is going to be expensive but I have to do it". OHHH-KAY! We are bloody idiots on the verge of jumping ship and you are that guy who will give the final nudge, eh? And if that's not it, that's even worse... Like if you do not have a hidden agenda and are simply somewhat neurotic. Because people are taking your comments seriously and responding to your monological rants.

Please, let it go.

Horizontal banding may be gone. Vertical is still there. These images don't have enough bottom level dark to really say what the degree is.

Unfortunately, I measure ISO 100 5D3 dynamic range 11.1 stops (screen level) and ISO 100 5D2 dynamic range 11.2 stops.  :(.

Wow, was not expecting that after another 3.5 years. It's not even going to be the best Canon has done :(.

The only hope is that the mask area is not valid on the 5D3 for testing this. I did note that the top mask area gave way too high values so they must be storing something secret up there. Maybe they are at the side too then? Although the side seemed to be usable for this test. I hope I am wrong about that.

It may be that Sony hold all the patents necessary to improve DR at ISO100 without going to a much different technology??

Very disappointing new RAW samples at ISO 100.

Four years for this?

It should be noted (and perhaps already has been?), but These images are still from a Pre Production model.

The images are soft but only because a Zoom Lens was used and the focus point wasn't on the eyes.

An 85L stopped down to F/11, which is what should of been used, would give completely different results.

I'm not a huge fan of these particular samples either as they do look a tad mushy (I'm really tired of the word "soft") for f/7.1 ISO100 and (apparent) flash.  Camera raw does apply a "25" for sharpening by default and they still don't look too hot.  Bumping this value in Camera raw, editing in photoshop and applying high-pass, unsharp mask, or even smart sharpening seems to help as well but I almost never need to do this with my 5DII raws.

I also got a good chuckle as well, as I noticed that the shooter used "AI Focus", which I never had good luck with on any Canon body.  Straight out of camera raws from my 5dII usually look nice and sharp nearly all the time.  I'm certainly not canceling my 5dIII pre-order or "switching to Nikon" due to these but they aren't fabulous.  I'll also state for the record that I'm by no means a professional photographer or expert post-processor.   :)
