The 5D lost....
In reply to MAC, Mar 21, 2013

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.

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

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.

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

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 have already worked the files.  Doing crops for 8x10 and 11x14...the cameras are identical.  At 16x24 you can see the 60D pulling ahead.  At 20x30, it was obvious the 60D could produce a more detailed landscape print.

This discussion is truly over.  It's painfully obvious that after over a year of hearing how the 5D was more detailed....even when reduced to a 2000 pixel wide screen view.....we can clearly see from these samples, yours, and the fellow overseas that it was never the case....the 5D lost.

now hopefully we dont need to hear any more exagerations about the magic, classic, 5D.  We can bury it like the original Canon D30 and argue about the 5D3 or something else.
