This brand new Canon EOS 5D Mark III vs Canon EOS 5D Mark II video popped up yesterday causing quite a stir. First, download the 1080 HD version and look for yourself.

What do you see? I see a whole lot less noise, but there’s also certainly nothing like the same sharpness. We don’t have any details from the poster about fstop, settings, lenses etc. There’s a blog page in Japanese about the shoot, but with the google translate I’m afraid I’m not getting any details.
