Canon EOS 5Ds and 5Ds R Resolution Test Results
With a 5Ds and a pair of 5Ds R bodies in house, you can guess what my current priorities are. First up:
Resolution chart test results have been added to the Canon EOS 5Ds and 5Ds R review pages.
The first thing that you will notice is how large the test chart details are in the 100% crops. These cameras deliver simply incredible resolution. Here is a 5Ds R vs. 5D Mark III comparison. A huge list of other cameras can be selected for this test lens, the Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM Lens. I suggest using an f/4 or f/5.6 aperture for comparison purposes (for highest lens resolution without effects of diffraction)
The second thing you might notice is that some of the chart details, including the numbers, do not fit into the 5Ds/5Ds R crops shown in the image quality tool. I miss these details and am working on options to include them for these bodies. Your ideas are welcomed.
The first link included on this post shows a comparison between the 5Ds and 5Ds R. Both are impressively sharp even at the very low sharpness setting (“1”) used for these crops. The 5Ds R is slightly sharper than the 5Ds, but with the sharp horizontal nearly-parallel lines, the 5Ds R shows slightly more moiré. I have been finding it challenging to find 5Ds R moiré, but a small amount does show on this chart image.
Much more to come.
B&H has the Canon EOS 5Ds in stock and the 5Ds R available for preorder.
