The posted photos, actually, confirm the charts and do not necessarily contradict, nor they confirm, what you say. The 60D has an advantage close to its extinct resolution, close to Nyquist; with very low contsrast. The 5D shows advantage in what is usually called local contrast but what most test sites call resolution as well - MTF-20 or MTF-50, etc. The 60D advantage at the extinct resolution can and has been measured, by DXOmark, for example, but the data is no longer on their site.

I guess, if I were into forensic photography, I would choose the 60D. For most photographic purposes, the posted images of the 5D look more attractive to me.
