If so how do you like and compare 5D3 to D800?
I have D800e and Canon 7D. 7D is a backup camera which I only use concurrently with longer brighter lenses or macro.
7D, even with higher pixel density, does not cut it anymore for me for all situations (after experience with D800e)and knowing Canon now I don't think a replacement for 7D (if it is ever materializes) is going to be any better. Rumor has it at 24mp crop frame but Canon can't make FF 22mp any cleaner than Nikon 36mp.
So I am thinking of upgrading to 5D3 because I got 3 supersharp Sigma lenses (120-300mm, 70-200mm 150mm macro all OS) and selling these to get D800e and buying these again is a greater money loss than just simply selling 7D and getting 5D3.
So if any of you shooting 5D3 I would love to here how it really compares to D800 because most reviews out there are biased to Canon users.
