Re: 5D Mk III vs D800 tests - unfair comparisons?
They're both in excess of £2500, so putting them in the same review is no issue. When the nearest equivalent to the 5D iii in Nikon comes out in terms of spec, they will probably both be put together in another head to head.
As to the Pro/SemiPro thing, at this price both manufacturers build their machines to take Pro abuse, so labels are meaningless.
I don't doubt that step by step ISO tests are or will be available, but it really comes down to what is the latest release at a given price bracket, and anyone who doesn't like the testing should send their D800/E along to me for an in depth analysis
In respect of the steps in ISO, the only thing to worry about is this:
Is there much noise at ISO 100? No
Is there much noise at ISO 400? No
Guess what the noise is like at ISO 200
