You might want to edit your subject and include Mark Wallace's name and AdoramaTV as they are probably both familiar to folks here. The video was v. intersting.

As always Mark Wallace delivers!, Excellent review. Everything as advertised with the 5D Mark III has been superb for me.

I really like the fact that Wallace is not bringing up one single word that would state a biased comparison against a specific camera from some other brand. I think both cameras/brands have their place (yes slap me if you want) but I'm only interested to see what the 5DIII delivers. Of course, it's only my opinion... I don't know if he's brand-fanatic or not but I could imagine him as well talking about the good things that's delivered by the other brand. I guess that's kind of professional.

Obviously he's working for Adorama here and it's not in their interests to have him pick and choose brands. Still I've always got the feeling that he's more of a Nikon guy, thought I can't really remember where I got that from.

Is it just me or most of the pictures look kinda sooooft (even for straight out of camera unprocessed files)?

The higher ISO shots do look like a real improvement, but still no matter how much I try to like this camera I just can't shake that feeling that Canon could and should have done much better, especially considering that the Mark III will have a 3+ year life cycle.

The D800 clearly wins this round on my humble opinion.
I do hope Canon can overturn this with a high resolution body later this year or in 2013.

As others have pointed out, Wallace is working for Adorama in this instance.  I'll bet it would be hard to find a review in which he doesn't serve as a cheerleader for the product in question.  I'm not saying he's necessarily wrong in this (or other) cases.  However, I would actually attach more significance to criticisms given that any negative comments would be against self-interest.  I don't know what one can conclude from a lack of them.

I don't think we can assume that Canon has the ability to make a 36 megapixel sensor that effectively competes with the Sony sensor that Nikon uses.  What Nikon has able to accomplish with that sensor is pretty remarkable.  The fact that Canon has trouble besting it in areas other than resolution using a sensor with pixels that are half again as big is telling.  To be clear, I'm not trying to rip Canon here.  I'm trying to applaud Sony.

I think we can assume that Canon has the technology from its 100+mps demonstration with the APS-H in 2010

I agree they most likely have the tech, the question is will they come out with a body with high MP in 2012-2013.  My guess is they will want to milk the cown on the mkiii and the 1dx first before leaking anything on the high MP body, to make sure buyers get the mkiii or 1dx first...just my gut...
