for me - for $600 - yep - it is my OMD

Anyway, my conclusion would be that the 60D resolved more detail in this test case, but I am rather surprised how close the 2 are. To qianp2k's credit the 5D does much better than one would expect for the sensor resolution differences.

This is true.

They are close but 60d wins by a tad in resolution.

60d is only 1/2 stop behind 5dc at iso 3200.

My T4i actually keeps up with the 5dc in sharpness from raw.

The only benefit of my 5dc over my 60d and T4i is the shallow dof -- f1.2- f2.8

otherwise, the T4i and 60d keep up and are lighter and light years ahead in feature sets

my T4i only cost $600

Makes it the perfect landscape camera

For $600, yep, T4i is my OMD

gianp2k hasn’t understood that crop doesn’t have a crop penalty and ain’t as bad as the online sites show it to be – because these online sites have been moving the crop sensor backwards and haven’t been keeping the sensor the same distances and using the best lens for the sensor

I will say that Canon hasn’t developed the crop lenses that I want yet -- because they don't want to cannabalize their FF business  – like a 60 F2 with 4 stop IS.  I’d sell my 5dc and go all crop if they had that one lens

But Canon --watch out for sigma ART

Next Purchase for me is either new sigma 30 F1.4 Art – and if it doesn’t work out  the way I expect in the reviews and then in my next purchase, then I’ll go for the sigma 35 F1.4 art.

Here is my super duper LV, Touch Screen, ETTR, magnify technique that I am working to perfect the short timing --3-5 seconds -- for people not walking, running, but relatively stationary


I have no problems using this technology iso3200 and even iso6400.  Yep, $600 is a value for sure and if the right focal length prime lenses for crop keep progressing, I sell my FF, and carry three, light weight crop cameras - and not change lenses much.

30 f1.4 ART on one; hopefully a new 60 f2 -  4stop IS on the second; and my 15-85 on the third with bounce flash

To have this quality with a sensor that is  2.56 times smaller – is amazing to me.  My thing is stay light and capable with multiple combos - versus gianp2k who will have so much weight, that his wife will be loaded down, and he'll fumble with the extra time to get the shot, and he'll have to worry about expensive gear being stolen - all over his obsession for this personal preference for creamy smooth and grains -- as you said -- too much is made of a small difference in noise that customers don't notice.

Watch the new sigma 30 f1.4 art -- perfect focal length for crop.  If F1.4 - F2 performs -- it gives crop the shallow dof and sharp at the perfect focal length I want.  A 4 stop IS at 60 -- would then be the key for me to move away from FF
