A personal test of mine that I decided might as well be public! Still torn on the results to be honest. The GH2 is using a 146Mbps Driftwood hack and was set to Smooth (Contrast -2).

Lens used – Nikkor Ai-s 80-200mm f 4 (set to f 8 for each camera)

The fact that the Mark III now looks about as sharp as a hacked GH2 is mind blowing. A week ago this comparison would have been a landslide in favor of the GH2. Look at the H.264 vs. the hacked GH2!

Again, Magic Lantern deserves a ton of credit. The Mark III is a beast.
