*** 5Dc vs 60D resolution test ***
Mar 17, 2013

Inspired by the thread http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3398807, I just did similar test between my 60D and 5Dc with various lenses.

Places: Indoor on a dollar bill, and outdoor in local school park, cross a vast open field targeted on a remote school building.

Weather condition: cloudy day so it's under soft light condition (instead of part of photos in harsh sunlight and part of photos is in shadow as tested by OP in the above thread). The light condition in this thread is pretty consistent.

Exposure: Manual exposure and checked EXIF first to make sure they are exposed the same (or the closest).

Aperture: Use F5.6 on 5D, and F4.0 on 60D which are respective optimized aperture on respective lenses on respective crop formats.

Lenses used in this test: Canon EF 24-70L/2.8 II, 24-105L/4.0 IS, 70-200L/4.0 IS and Sigma 17-50/2.8 OS (only for reference as it's my walk-around lens on my 60D).

Focus distance: 24mm on 60D vs 38.4mm (tried my best to be close as only can guess on lens' distance window that doesn't have direct 38.4mm mark). 70mm on 60D vs 112mm on 5D (tried my best to be close as only can guess on lens'' distance window that doesn't have direct 112mm mark).

Focus point: the same spot in the remote building.

Focus method: AF on 5D (it doesn't have LV), MF (with 10x LV precisely)/AF on 60D. I make sure to turn off IS/OS on all lenses on tripod, MLR with 2-sec timer. Remote release (cable on 5D and wireless release on 60D).

Processed: All taken in RAW format and converted in Canon DPP with default setting, neutral preset. Only changes are adding a bit sharpness, +3 RAW in 5D files and +7 RAW in 60D files in DPP.

I. Indoor under constant indoor light on a dollar bill.

In very close distance just outside min focus distance.  It is a very small center area.
