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).

Both pics seem soft or slightly out of focus. Does the lens perhaps need a bit of fine tuning?

No, they are not.

Perhaps not. I seem to be able to do no better

60D should have even slight theoretical advantage as I used MF (and also AF but MF is only very slightly better) while 50D only can AF (it's impractical to use MF without a Magnifying Viewfinder) on the mercy of no BF/FF issues.


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.

Why add sharpness? That would seem to negate any resolution comparison. As it stands, the 60D pic does seem to easily out resolve the 5D pic. Was the subject distance the same?

Otherwise even mushy, and 5D will have a bit advantage.

Put you sharpened the two differently. Do you think that would affect perceived resolution/sharpness?

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.

5D+24-70L II

60D+24-70L II

Can you make the full file after conversion and prior to sharpening available?

Please provide a link that I can upload RAW files. I don't have a site can hold RAW files.

Just upload the uncropped version pre-sharpening. No need for RAW...only the 60D, I'm curious only

Some of the EXIF is left out due to the crop I think. Appreciate the comparison. Thank you.

No, they are not. All photos have EXIF but only 24-105L is reported in EXIF while others are not.

Jeff's viewer seems unable to see all the EXIF regards distance and such reported by the lens...that may just be a Canon thing though.
