The D800 is ~25% better at low light sports shooting?  really?  Seems a bit fishy to me.  Most of what I have read indicates they are reasonably close only if you downsample the D800 to the Mkiii resolution.  I have used the mkiii in near total darkness and have had a few real keepers at iso 12.8k.

I was pretty sure they would just bump the mkii score by a few points but I was really thinking it might have been 84-85.  I guess Canon glass is just that much better on average?  The difference in samples that I have seen is not that great.

That said, I do a lot of landscape photography and totally would have switched had I not just bought some L lenses when the rebates were tempting around xmas.

Sorry dude, not fake : http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Cameras/Camera-Sensor-Database/Canon/EOS-5D-Mark-III

Better ISO score was kinda expected (way higher actually) but I'm very very dissapointed with ALL the scores and ofcourse the overall score...

And they dare to ask $500 more than D800 for this crap with no improvements over the 5DII.

Now lets see how bad 1DX will suck compared to D4, lol even to D3s...

GJ Canon, thanks for stealing our money!


ps: Don't flame me for whining, open your eyes and see that Canon is the one to blame here!

Well then DxO clearly is run by nikon. Either that, or according to them we are all big fools.

not there anymore. it was a screwup. if the 5diii loses to the d800 in iso sensitivity then dxo mark is completely invalid in my book. Although, as of right now it's hardly realistic.

Wonder where the initial numbers came from though... Perhaps they are measuring public reaction to determine the score?   :P  I kid, I kid...

But as other reviews and tests indicate, DR at low  ISO is worse than D800. What surprises is the overall score.

so you claim that it should have better ISO score than D800, so pretty much better than D4/D3s? lol

Lets see, the mkiii is worst then d800 in low light iso?  That alone makes me question the validity of these test in real life situation.  Just based,on the many sample already out, this is likely not the case!
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

Report to moderator and ask for this thread to be deleted. It adds no value. DxO have not yet scored the 5DIII.

Exactly . . . the 5DmkIII is still listed and "PREVIEW" and "NOT TESTED."
