    thanks for posting that

    I am interested in the 3200 and 6400 range especially for wedding work, and PJ work too. Looks like a very good improvement over the 5D2 and on par with a D3, maybe not so a D3s

    Yeah! I want one! Only one small problem. I'd better start saving.

    I'm not convinced, you'll have to send it to me so I can test it out on the things I shoot.

    I reckon that 12 800 matches the 550D at 3200... great performance

    Lucky you!!!

    Is it possible to post some pictures where more of the frame is in focus?
    ie, with a closed down lens setting so we can see a bit more than just one little bit that is in focus?

    It seems that every test shot I've seen with the 5D3 has a blurry background.

    I'm salivating over getting one, but it's hard to convince she who must be obeyed right now, but in a couple of months.................

    Where did you get it from?
    They sure got their stock quickly!
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    thanks for posting these - very encouraging
    I guess it's a bit difficult to comment on direct comparison of these particular images though since you seem to have reduced the aperture to increase the iso at the same exposure? - I was keen to see what was going to happen with the fringing you can see at iso200 vs iso 12800 (the reported 2 stops better performance than 5dmkII which i push to 3200 at weddings) I hope I got to play with one myself soon!!!

    Wow. The low light high ISO capability would probably be the only thing that would make me even think of upgrading.

    I used to push my 5D2 to ISO 1600 at low light and get decent shots. Now with my 5D3 (since last Friday.... ) I push to 6400 and get the same sort of IQ....

    FWIW, I'm delighted with my 5dmk3 - the high iso performance is IMHO hugely improved. I'd suggest that from a gut feeling the quality of the file shot on 5dmk2 @ 400iso is about the same as one shot on the 5dmk3 @3200 - big step forward.

    I did some comparative tests with my 5D3 (and the 5D2 that hasn't been sold yet). Same shots at various ISO values.
    They are all in this set n Flickr....
    The 5D3 is much better at high ISO and does not show "banding" like the 5D2.

    I never shoot over 800 on my 50D as the noise control on the 50D is well known to be poor and I have longed for a 5D2 and now I hurt with the want fora 5D3 - one day. Very interesting post. thanks
