A bonus shot from today. ISO 4000 full size JPG

wow, even though that's JPEG, that looks great.  it's hilarious to me that your impromptu shot of your dad looks 1000 times better than any of the "official" mark III photos i've seen. 

how could they release such terrible images!

+1
it's waaaay better than those cheap official shots !

Agreed. I can't fathom what Canon was thinking.

OK guys. Tomorrow you'll have your raws (thanks for the info about acr!!!!).
70-200 II@135mm f/4, manual live view focus and iso 1600-3200-6400-12800-25600. Any suggestions for better settings?
I 'll upload the raw files to a filehosting site and we 'll discuss the results together :D

Do not forget that I'm shooting in a well-lit environment though.
Try one at 1/4000 with lens cap on and 1sec with lens off, if possible. (totally dark and totally blown out)
Some people are interested in DR  ;)

Yes a raw shot at ISO 100, 1/8000th with lens cap on (better a body cap on, or at least make sure the lens does not have a maximum aperture faster than f/2.8, if you use an f/2 or f/1.4 lens or such the results will be bad) and also try to shade the front of the lens as much as you can (hidden under a coat or something, but they might think you are trying to steal it though), f-stop doesn't matter.  And then take one with the lens on and cap off, ISO 100 again, lens wide open and maybe 2-3" exposure, something that makes sure parts of the scene are 100% blown out. For kicks you can also do the same at ISO160 so we can see how they do the 1/3 ISOs this time.

Then we can see if the DR matches that measured from the masking area (likely) and if this sample is radically different from IR's or not (not likely) and we can get a much better look at the look of the noise and see if it looks nicer than the 5D2 noise (less banding and stuff that sticks out to the eye in more bothersome ways than tight-grained, random noise).

And it is kind of funny that whoever off the street handles the new bodies for 10 seconds always seems to be bale to put up sharper/better images than anything Canon ever puts itself, even after having all the time in the world to select images to post.  ;D

I am really oversensitive or just sensitive about image sharpness/softness. I have to admit that image of your dad (many thanks to him by the way) looks good as it is ISO 4000. Pretty good. What I am worried about the most is sharpness at ISO 100, 200. So far, from samples which ware provided on IR and Canon it looks terribly soft for me. Your image shows a positive side for me. I really, really hope the real images from 5d3 at low iso are  sharp. Do u have any photos at low iso? I would be really pleased if you could provide. Anyway, big thanks for current uplaod.

I don't think canon particularly cares about sample shots. Look what they offer up for lenses.

Take the new 24-70. They published this:



Not particularly useful.



I think they do it because they're expected to, but don't give it much thought, weight or effort.

I think it's partly because they're trying to show all of the fetures of the camera, so leave noise reduction on. IR also left the NR on, which is probably why the JPEGs don't look anywhere near as good as the RAW images. If previous cameras are anything to go by, then if NR is switched on, even the RAW images seem be affected slightly by NR, even though they shouldn't in theory. Certainly when I switched NR off in my quick test (couldn't put my own card in), the MkIII looked sharp enough at ISO25,600 and only slightly noiser than the MkII at ISO 6400. I deliberately had an item of black/dark clothing in frame the Canon t-shirts are quite handy in that regard :P), although it wasn't quite as dark with my MkII.

I just came back from a photo exhibition. I played with the new Canon 5D mkIII (with 24-70 I and 70-200 II) . I shot some portraits from iso 1600 all the way up to 25600. I was impressed!
Here I uploaded 2 100% crops at iso 1600 and 25600. Sorry for not uploading the whole image but the model (my dad) is not very comfortable about it  ;D 
I also played with Canon G1X but didn't have an sd card to save the files..
Polu oraia Akis,, I can't wait to get my 5D III I called Katerelos and put myself down on the waiting list;) have you heard any prices yet here for Greece? from what I heard probably 3,200,00 euro but maybe cheaper.
