Resolution test, between crop (18MP) and fullframe (12.8MP)
Mar 12, 2013

I've read here several times allready, that crop cameras has much lower resolution, than even the old 5D, even with a very good lens. So I grow tired of such claims without any backup (except from the questionable DXO site) and decided to test this for myself. Unfortunately the weather here is so so now, so I've tested in the city (not a landscape) and the weather is changing so fast, that in the seconds which cost me to change bodies the sun went behind clouds. Even so, here are the pics, to judge for yourselves. I'll leave my commentary for now and add it later.

Canon EOS 5D + 24-70mm f/2.8L II @ 41mm & f11

Canon EOS 60D + 24-70mm f/2.8L II @ 26mm & f8
