Has anyone compared the footage from these cameras? On paper it doesn't look like there's any reason to spend the money on the 5D if all I want to do is shoot video.

Max – like the $2797 D800, the $1997 D600 has a serious problem with moire (shimmering, colored bands on patterned subjects such as brickwork, shingled roofs, striped clothing, etc.). This can be seen clearly in this side-by-side between the D600 and the $1249 Panasonic GH3:
If you are willing to modify your camera, there is a hack that allows the 5D Mark III to shoot RAW, surpassing the resolution and dynamic range of the GH3:
But this will significantly increase the amount of storage required to record your videos – and can be a challenge to deal with in the editing suite.
For video, I recommend the GH3 – straight out of the box, it is the best value-for-money large-sensor, interchangeable lens camera on the market.
– records for hours continuously,
– has lightning fast and accurate video autofocus, and
– has a viewfinder that continues working in video mode.
Hope this is helpful,
