EOS 5D Mark III DXO-Marks published, and then not – PUBLISHED

Update 2: The scores are online again. Nothing changed.

Update: the scores have been posted in DPreview forum. Here they are. The measures reported for the EOS 5D Mark III are the same I saw: 2239 ISO – 11.7 EVs DR – 24 bits color depth, overall score 81. This measures look strange to me, especially when compared to the 5D Mark II and Nikon’s D800:

  • 5D Mk II – 1815 ISO – 11.9 EVs DR – 23.7 Color Depth, overall score 79
  • D800 – 2835 ISO – 14.4 EVs DR – 25.3 bits Color Depth, overall score 95


Just a quick note that the posting of the EOS 5D Mark III DXO-Marks could be a matter of minutes. I saw them just 10 minutes ago but now it says that scores are not available. I wont tell you the overall score i saw, could have been a typo. 🙂

Stay tuned!

    I think after this score and the hardware issues reported lately, 5DMkIII’s $3500 price tag seems excesive…

    Not surprise. It’s expected according to the reviews and comments over Internet.

    the techradar test:

    TIFF images (after conversion from raw) have a consistently good signal to noise ratio across the sensitivity range comparing closely to the Canon EOS 1Ds Mk III and just having the edge over the Nikon D800. It also shows a slight improvement at all sensitivities over the Canon EOS 5D Mk II.

    TIFF files (after conversion from raw) have a high dynamic range with results comparing closely to the Nikon D4 and D800. Compared with the Canon EOS 5D Mk II, there is a marked improvement showing over 2EV greater range at the lower end of the sensitivity scale.

    i thought techradar is a DxO certified lab?
