The 5D3 looks like a winner here. The D800 might render superior detail, but it's not likely to match the high-ISO performance of the Canon. The Canon wins in fps and potentially in AF program.

They're really close, so your preference will depend on your usage and which lenses you already own. It'll be interesting to compare full DPReview reviews when they're ready.

I actually get to do a shots with that and the Canon 800mm f/5.6, to me the Canon was superior.

Regarding the new 5D, I like the specs, but not the price.

Here in Norway the pre-order price of both the new 24-70 f/2.8L II and the 5D mkIII is exactly double of the current models.

I'll have to go in an check them out next week if I have some free time, I'll be in the area for a meeting.

I feel bad for them as "Henry's" is the big player in southern ontario, and if you own a little shop and aren't in Toronto, you've got your work cut out for you.

I preordered yesterday from BH Photo. I've had my 5D MKII since it was originally released as well and it has served me well. I'm just deciding if I should keep the MKII as a backup or not.

Is the US price of $3499 the total price, or do you guys have to pay some tax (state sale tax?) in addition to the $3499?

In Norway the preorder price is 29990 NOK, 1 USD=5.7 NOK, so that's 5260 USD. That's incl 25% tax.

it depends where you buy from remmib. Most online retailers don't charge sales tax unless you live in the same state they have a presence in.
