Here is an image I took this past week... ISO 25,600... Processed the RAW in LR4 just now. Just my standard sharpening/NR... Which is something like 50/0.9 for sharpening and 20 for NR. Very light NR. Click below to view full resolution. Great detail for such high ISO.

Nice! The improved SNR can really be seen at these high ISO's. While the dimmer parts of the scene does show noise (very nice "grainy" noise, almost like film grain if you ask me!), the brighter tones are very clean. Personally, I find that far more valuable than increased maximum DR at ISO 100 and 200.

Hmmm I noticed that when processing some high ISO RAW images on the lightroom 4.1 pre release. Im not sure if thats to do with the MKIII sensor or something clever in Lightroom, probably a combination of both.

Why can't we stick to the 5d mark iii.
Every topic always the D800 with his 36mp and high DR.

We all know this by now.
Now I am interested in only 5d mark iii performance on this CANON forum.

Um...this topic is entirely about the 5D III...talk about it all you want!

JPEG's strait out of the camera have the same look and feel to the noise. I'm thinking its a hardware characteristic, not a software trick. Once you get rid of electronic forms of noise, the only thing left would be random noise produced by the physical nature of photons.

Here's my attempt at 12,800.  Shot in RAW (under tough lighting conditions at a concert) and processed (including NR) in CS5:
