The 5DmkIII AF is better than the mkIV. It's the same system that's in the 1Dx. I'm sure they are out there, but I have not read a user review yet that did not find the new 5D AF much better than the mkIV.
@Tim: Thanks for confirming my suspicions. Frankly, besides the 1DX weatherproofing and FPS, I can't see why someone (read me) would not consider a 5D3 as their primary camera body for aviation photography. I know that sounds like a form of penis envy justification, but it is truly how I'm feeling at this stage of my relationship with the 5D3 platform. (penis, feeling, relationship all in one sentence - ouch) The RAW files I've gotten thus far are very very nice. Did I say thank you SteveZ for selling me your 5D3. If not, thank you, thank you, thank you
Since I'm currently committed to Canon equipment, I also think that while the D800 produces RAW files superior to the 5D3, the D800 is not as robust or able to shoot action at the level of the 5D3. As Bill Fortney said, the D800 was design to be on a tripod. Not hating Nikon, just trying to make a comparison of strengths.
