Is REALLY 40D so bad vs. 5D? The proof (pic).

I was on a trip to U.S. with my friend.

I had 5D, he has just bought the 40D.

I noticed that IQ of my images taken with 5D is much better, but it wasn't any surprise. He was using mainly 40D+17-40/f4 combo and I had 5D+35L and 14L II.

Being in Washington D.C in front of the White House, I borrowed my friends new 70-200/f4 IS lens. I left mine at home and I new it is a very sharp piece of glass.

We did almost identical pictures with almost identical settings. Besides the underexposure of my 5D (corrected in DPP) they are almost identical so with the same parameters in DPP I transferred the files from DPP to PS CS2 to compare them.

I couldn't believe the difference is so high.
IS was on, 3 images was taken to avoid motion blur.

They were taken with the SAME lens!

Is a difference between 40D and 5D really so huge? The other images I compared showed even a bigger IQ difference, but ot can be influenced by lenses used.
