Re: not fair

The poster stated the shots were at ISO 200.

Of course the 5D is going to do better at high ISO. The sensor is 4X the size (area) with the same number of pixels so high ISO is obviously going to be better.

I think the comparison is a fairly typical example of how people might shoot the 2 cameras using long tele lenses. Bigger sensoirs will always win out over smaller sensors all things else being equal. It has been that way since the film days. Nothing new to report there.
