Canon EOS 5D MkIII trumped by D800 in testing

Canon EOS 5D MkIII trumped by D800 in testing

Hot on the heels of Canon's embarrassing confirmation that the hardware design of the EOS 5D Mark III has a flaw that allows light into the body, testing by specialists DxO Labs indicate only minor advantages from the new model and - unlikely to help in the ongoing Canon vs. Nikon platform war - performance still lagging behind that of the D800.

Nikon D800 takes on Canon 5D Mark III for video quality

In the war to create the greatest handheld camera of the day, both Nikon and Canon have come out swinging with video-ready units under the names Nikon D800 and Canon 5D Mark III. What we'd like to know is if the difference between video qualities on these units is one to be concerned about, and/or if it'll be a deciding factor in choosing one or the other to purchase brand new from the camera shop.
