I don't want to hijack this thread. But as soon as my D800 arrives, I have a complete DSLR rail system c/w follow focus and BM Shuttle 2 to test uncompressed + QT DNxHD output via HDMI. Will post under Nikon DSLR forum. Mean time you could not go wrong with either of these cameras. From what I have seen both the 5D and the D800 show impressive results. Just a sample http://vimeo.com/43155811. Sample of MK III and D800.

There's an issue which is not mentioned here for choosing between the Canon 5d Mk III and the Sony FS100: pans bug.
AFAIK that is an issue that has not yet been quite solved in HDSLR cameras... except if the technology was changed for the Mk III. Then I gladly swallow my words. ;)
Using a plug-in in post to deal with it is still processing the image, which doesn't look to me as the best way to deal with the problem.
Another question is price: a Canon 5d Mk III is $4,300 with 24-105 zoom; a Sony FS100 is $5,600 with 18-200 zoom. The latter is a "proper" video camera, the former is "still" a photo camera, with no audio recording capability.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. Been busy with work so it has taken me a bit to get back on track. I'm thinking that I'm leaning towards the Mkiii for a few reasons; one main reason I think the quality of the film would be better then the FS100 and then there is the cost factor. Would like to hear from others on this.

You know, if I were going to drop a bundle on a new camera, and making a choice between camera X, Y, Z, I would get my hands on each one of the cameras I was considering before making my choice, rather than being steered in a particular direction by a fanboy pushing the camera they bought, or by judging footage from the internet.
