50D versus 40D, you be the judge.

Re: I'll show you another great comparison

It's quite difficult to make a judgment between two images of different scenes. But, the Mark II image you posted looks great, no doubt about it. Look, it's possible the Mark II is going to look better than the Mark I at 100% but the Mark II is still at a disadvantage. It just speaks to how fabulous the sensor technology is on that full frame camera. It would look even better down rezzed.

so here's the ultimate comparison. instead of a 50D vs 40D, where
it's IMO, equal in noise but not a vast improvement in IQ.

here's the wonderful 5D at ISO 1600 vs the newer 5D MKII at ISO 2000,
a full 9mp increase in resolution.

So by your standards, I've not only selected a camera that's 9mp
better vs 5mp's but I've gone so far as to compare ISO 1600 vs ISO
2000. Tell me according to your logic the new 5DMKII is at a
disadvantage when showing 100% crops.

Again, there's no reason the 50D would be at a disadvantage...unless
of course the IQ and Noise improvements aren't there as claimed.

Note of course, I'm showing noise vs areas in focus and sharpness /
details. You can view Phil's galleries if you're interested in
seeing the full size images for your own comparison.
