E-5 vs 5DMK2 - Part Deux
Jan 12, 2012

FF - the next best thing since sliced bread?
Well, maybe not....

I got 5DMK2 so I decided to pit it against my E-5, so here's an overview:

1. Distortion

Appartenly good L lens, all images were shot at at least one, mostly 2 stops higher for Canon (i.e. mostly f8-10)

17-40mm @17mm vs 7-14mm @8mm

Side crop of the top image, guess which is which

17-40mm @28mm vs 14-35mm @14mm

crops, center

crops, side

Sigma 70-200mm OS HSM (very good lens IMO, at least for sharpness and AF) vs ZD 35-100mm (f4 vs f2.8)

Center crop, effective reach

IS test, best in series, 100% crops

Light falloff @100 (200mm), f2 vs 2.8




Crops from the above images (one stop in favor of 5DMK2?):
