No doubt. 5D beats 50D on IQ!
Oct 3, 2008

I claimed in another thread that the 50D - although a brilliant camera - can't measure up to the 5D in terms of image quality. Was asked for "proof" and did a comparison this morning. I used the 24-105 lens for the test - at 24mm for the 50D and 35mm for the 5D (should have been 38,4, sorry about that). Manual exposure f8 1/100 s. The light was the same during the few minutes I used to do the captures.

Both images are shot in raw, opened in DPP (neutral cam profile) with all kinds of options turned off (nr/usm/alo). They were converted to full size jpegs with exactly the same settings. I think furher comments are unnecessary. Here is a montage of both images side by side. 5D on the left side.
