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. There results were posted at: http://www.pbase.com/jcassatt/canon_5d_vs_300d

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.
