Is 7D's image quality even worse than that of 40D or 50D?
Sep 17, 2009

I read something at this link about comparing 7D, 5D2, and 50D.

One comment says this:

However, the first RAW picture I took with a 5D2 totally blew my mind away. So much sharpness, detail, contrast, color, micro-contrast and crispness down to the pixel-level was more than I had ever imagined. Compared to my 50D, the image quality of the same scene, both shot with an L lens, is just insane!

Now I’ve been browsing through all the sample shots from the beta models of the 7D, and I have to say I am quite disappointed. These shots were taken by professionals who know how to take a picture – but the images look the same, or on higher f-stops even worse, than what comes out of a 40D or 50D. Only one thing becomes apparent immediately: the banding is gone! hooray!

Is it true that "but the (7D's) images look the same, or on higher f-stops even worse, than what comes out of a 40D or 50D."?

How about comparing that between 7D and 5D2?

Thanks!
