If I didn't crop so often (only for birds and some wildlife) I wouldn't give it a second thought either. I suspect that for most users and for videos, Canon's 5D3 sensor will be KING (at least for a short while).

I use those tiny pixels on my 7D, but noise becomes a problem pretty quickly. I now shoot at ISO 6400 pretty regularly, but the results will NOT stand a 100% look. With the 5D3 it looks like 12800 might show well in some very large sizes.

For wildlife, the need to buy more focal length for a FF camera is a little daunting also. The 600mm is now $12,000!!

The camera body actually looks like a bargain to me, but those super-teles have gone out into another orbit.
