There is no true scientific test across different systems. There is too many variables. Its a fools game. Joe insisted the test be done just as it was. Corners still suffered. Its a weakness of 35mm FF. Two stops of aperture weren't enough to cover it up.

What variables are in control of?

None...so it's not a test at all.

You won't get an argument out of me. I would have done it at the same aperture. It wouldn't have been better, but it would have been fair.

Also....the prime you used is rather...lackluster...at best.

And a lackluster prime was put up against a kit zoom lens shot wide open. I guess the deck was really stacked against the 5D.

Bummer, eh
