Why does he do it?

If you look at the metadata, the SL1 is using a Canon 50mm f1.4 lens for this tests at f8. The G1X is at 112mm (equiv) f7.1 which is a weird setting. The goal of studio tests is usually to test the camera (sensor) so most cameras are using a prime in this case. If you are going to slap on the canon 15-85 on the SL1, I would be the results would be a bit more even.

That's why I always treat studio tests with caution. The G1X at F7.1 is creeping into visible diffraction territory, certainly not ideal for close-up work like this. I only shoot at that aperture for landscape stuff when dof masks this, F4/5.6 would have been much better for this test.
