Viggo:

Unless I am doing macro needing a lot of sharpness or a high DR shot (where I need RAWs) , the jpeg off the 5D3 is pretty good at even high ISO.... and still usable with LR.

I usually shoot both raw+jpeg. The jpeg goes to the SD card and RAW to the CF card.

I load the SD card (jpegs) to LR and play around. for the most part I don't feel the need to use RAWS. But maybe on 10% shots, I need to use the RAW's which I do via DPP. So this Hybrid approach gives me speed and quality without spending all my time PP'ing.

If they want to 'normalize' and compare the images between two native resolutions, then they should normalize it to a resolution that's right in between the two. Then you would get a 'fairer' comparison.

Since its 22Mp and 36MP, a 'normalized' resolution of 29Mp would be a better comparison ???

Not fair since reducing the size improves visible noise. In a real word scenario, it would come down to framing. So they should both be tested at their native resolutions with a shot that is framed similarly for both sensors.. i.e. for the D800 move away from the subject and for the 5d3 move into the subject, then show us a 100% crop from both cropped to the small of the 2 sensors.  This gives us the same framing per pixel group.

This way you get pixel by pixel comparison of the same shot...
