Terribly oversharpened
In reply to PicOne, Jan 22, 2013

I generally prefer the output of the DP2M (detail and color rendition wise, judging from samples) to the output of my 5D Mk II. However, the DP2M sample in this test has been terribly oversharpened and there's jaggies all over the place. The 5D Mk II image on the other hand seems almost devoid of any sharpening.

To even come close to the same level of artifacts and oversharpening on the 5D image I had to run it through Unsharp Mask 3 times at 500% Amount and varying Radius, and it's not even quite there.
I know you said this wasn't a terribly scientific comparison, but I just want to stress that it really isn't.

Here's a comparison (be sure to view original size):
