Canon EOS 7D vs. Pentax K7

5.1MB JPEG (4672 x 3104)

Using our benchmark RAW converter, Adobe Camera RAW, tries to equalize image processing between the two cameras and allows us to get a better idea of the level of detail actually captured. As you can see both cameras images look crisper and exhibit better detail, but the Pentax K-7 gains just a tad more more in relative terms. Nevertheless both cameras show impressive detail and, due to its higher nominal resolution, the Canon still resolves marginally more.
