For landscape/astro shooters the new camera should be a huge dissapointment. It certainly is to me.

The examples look really bad. They have blotchy patches of NR where chrominance noise was. It seems they put a heavy AA filter on the 5DIII as they did on the 7D to help video. This goes in detriment of IQ for photography. Nikon noticed this effect and released two versions of the D800.

The 5DIII is a fantastic camera for JPG shooters of sports & events. For reporters and for videographers but for Studio, Landscape and Astro it's not good. Not good at all.

Nikon made the logical evolution of the 5DII and now Canon makes the logical evolution of the D700. Oh the Irony!
