Nikon D3s, Canon EOS-1 Mark IV compared

Update#3: more Canon EOS-1 Mark IV samples at different ISO available here.

Update#2: Canon’s ISO102,400 picture was removed but you can still see it here. Canon also pulled the plug on the “Nocturne” video by Vincent Laforet.

Update: Canon Mark 4 ISO 102,400 sample shot available here (are those for real ??? – scroll to the bottom of the page) – you can compare it to Nikon’s ISO 102,400 sample shot.
