Is the 5D11 at least as good or slightly better than the original 5D?

Re: Is the 5D11 at least as good or slightly better than the original 5D?

I still have the 5D and 5DII and slightly prefer the images from the 5D. The images from the 5DII are more contrasty and when used with a contrasty lens such as the 35f1.4L the resulting shots are rather gritty, more suited to PJ work. Prefer to use the 17-40 f4L with it.  High ISO shots are much superior with the 5DII. You also get much larger files with the 5DII. Ther extra MP are a boon if you need to crop.
