Re: please don't twist my photos

Here are CR2 RAW Files

LOL, check above again if you don't twist. 5D not only is sharper but resolves more fine details (such as the bricks), cleaner with much less fringe.

Since I own both cameras and generated thousand and thousand photos from each of them, I know so clearly 5D takes better portrait and landscape photo while 60D has 'reach' (pixel density) advantage in zoo and safari. They complement each other well.

70-200 F4 IS L isn't exactly known as a landscape lens.

Not sure how it works on APS-c, but widely regarding the excellent lens on FF. You hear lots in Canon forums.

TDP 70-200L/4.0 IS review

I have lots of photos from 70-200L/4.0 IS. These are all from 70-200L/4.0 IS, just grab a few samples in my DPR gallery.

what about the results of your 24-70II 60d combo results above? And in prior Op's thread? I had the 60d winning in the center of those

It's very close. In such almost macro distance, 60D with 24-70L II seems edge out a bit in the center area (that dollar bill is in the most center of entire photo), partially 5D photo display a bit moire so get affected a bit, and partially it may not precisely focus in such distance from 5D AF while 60D thru 10x LV precise MF. Nevertheless there is very small difference. I believe DXOMark P-MPix may derive from average frame MTF data. So far I don't see DXOMark test is wrong.

No need to mention or jump to camera alone. My T4i does better with the 70-200 F2.8L in the center as I've shown.

I don't see much difference in your photos. I'd suggest you to test again from at least 50X focus-length distance or better in outside. I will also test with 70-200L/2.8 IS II.

Have you tried the camera correct and defringe slider tool in LR4?

Yes I know how to remove CA. but just show default RAW-JPEG from ACR.

Take a deep breath and repeat using F5.6 on the crop and f9 on the FF instead, and a highly detailed 3d landscape shot with a clearly controlled focus point and use your best landscape lens -- the 24- 70 F2.8II then we'll see that the 60d wins in landscapes -- by a hair -- when one goes above 20x30 in size -- which I never go that high .. and neither do you very much

I will do again in closer distance with lots of details begin with.
