When my 5D arrived in 2006, I decided to do a test to demonstrate how much my 5D was compared to my lowly 300d (the original digital Rebel). So I took the same picture at the same position with the camera tripod mounted using a 70-200 f4L lens. I adjusted to get the same FOV by varfying the zoom ratio. I then printed both pictures to 12x18. When I show people the two prints, they have a hard time figuring out which camera took which picture.

Any modern dslr takes great pictures in good light with static subjects. Now try the same test under moonlight at ISO 3200 or with a moving subject.
