Canon 5D mk3 vs OM-D E-M5
Mar 29, 2012

Just looked at the studio samples comparing the two cameras to each other and I must say I was shocked how bad the Canon JPEGs were. At ISO 200, Canon obviously applies a ton of NR, losing a lot of details (particularly obvious in the feathers). And even in RAW, the OM-D still looks good in comparison, even if color rendition is smoother in the Canon. If you also compare prices, size and weight, you have to really ask yourself whether you want to buy that mk3. Especially as I find the mk2 looks almost as good as the mk3 in RAW and actually better in JPEG.
