Chez -- I can't agree with your view, and must endorse ggreene's points.
ame for the 5D3, not the same as the 5D2 sensor. Maybe not a huge leap, but certainly improved sensors.
true, the 5D3 sensor isn't the same as the 5D2 sensor.... it's actually marginally worse at ISO100 for DR and natural light color sensitivity and worse in both respects than the old sensor from the 1Ds3
OTOH the special video binning is a massive improvement for video (certainly when you use ML RAW and get all you can out of it, vastly better than anything the 5D2 can do for video) and the much reduced high iso banding and such make it, at times, perform noticeably better at high iso (other times the difference isn't really all that noticeable real world) and yeah it has a good 1/2 stop better SNR at ISO100-800 although that's not that big of a deal since the 5D2 was fairly clean there but it can help a bit at times, especially at 400 and 800, can add in a touch more sharpening.
