    JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Standard PS), Self-Timer
     
  • Canon EOS 5D: Canon EF 85 mm F1.8 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100

4,012 KB JPEG (4368 x 2912)

The EOS 5D has a 4.6 megapixel advantage over the EOS 30D and the difference is obvious, lots more detail available throughout the image especially in the texture of labels and the small print on the globe. As pointed out in our EOS 5D review however it would be difficult to see this resolution advantage even in an 11 x 8 inch print, very few photo printers are capable of more than 300 dpi.

The 30D had a 50 mm lens and the 5D had an 85mm lens and that could account for the difference in reading the globe etc.

Not really, the 5D is Fullframe, (x1.0 crop) whereas the 30D is Canon APS-C, and therefore with x1.6 crop - so the 50mm Lens behave itself like a 80mm lens compared to full frame, which is close to the 85mm Portrait focal lens onto the FF 5D.
