Sorry, I don't have 5D2 to compare to be able to choose the images showing a difference.

never mind, just post a couple of your 5D shots.

5Dc is well-known for natural sharpness due to weak AA filter (and FF sensor), creamy color rendition that especial noticeable in cloudy days on my experience.

this is interesting. i think this creamy little feature also applies to some
extent to the 5DIII. for example, here are two different images of the
same building. the first was made in overcast but clear conditions.
second was made around 6:00pm in the afternoon sunshine.
notice how smooth and creamy is the first photo and how the harshness
( of the building) increases in the second. i think the natural light makes
all the difference.

and two more examples...

overcast day

sunny day
