1dsII & 5d noise
Dec 7, 2006

I would greatly appreciate the opinions of anyone with direct experience of both the 1dsII and the 5d.

I am aware that the general opinion is that the high iso noise is lower on the 5d, but I've only seen comparisons of each camera at 100% crop, which I think is only usefull to a certain extent. Because of the extra resolution of the 1dsII, at any given print size the pixels will be printed smaller than the 5d's and therefore the "noisy pixels" will also be smaller and therefore less noticeable.

So my question is, on a quality print of 10x15 inches, at what iso can you tell the difference in noise between the two cameras? Or if you would like to think of it another way, at what print size can you not tell the two apart judging from the amount of noise at iso 1600?

I kindly appreciate any help in this.
