Full size 7d image or cropped 5d MkII image-which is better quality?
Jul 11, 2010

Hi, I have read that the IQ on a the 5d MkII is better than the 7d but wondered if, using the same lens on the same view, when you cropped the 5d image to make it the same as that of the 7d which would then be better IQ? Hope that makes sense. Effectively it would seem that the 5d MkII has better resolution and allows one to crop without too much loss so could one get the 'no crop factor' benefits of a FF but still be able to replicate the 1.6x effect by cropping and still have a better final (albeit cropped) image than the 7d would give?
