Hi,

I was wondering if anyone else was considering the Canon 5D MKIII over the D800? I'm looking to move to FX, and I'm not too happy about the really high MP count on the D800. Then I saw the 5D MKIII with its 22MP count (I am coming from a D7000) and its higher continuous drive (6 vs 4 for the D800) and its higher ISO. I even read somewhere where the 5D MKIII performed better than the D4 in terms of high ISO. The price of the 5D MKIII is comparable to the D800. I have never owned a Canon DSLR, so I'm not sure about their track record with DSLR's. Also, how are the quality of their lenses when compared to Nikon?

Here is the links to the comparison between the 5D MKIII and the D4:
