I think something went horribly wrong with the 5D. Here's a little test I did.


While the XZ-1 has good low light performance for a P&S camera, it pales in comparison to a larger sensor camera like a NEX. It's like night and day, literally. I don't see how a 5D could do worse unless something is amiss.

Definitely wrong settings or focus problem on 5D. Difficult to judge when we can't see the original out-of-camera files (why not if the OP wants to prove something?). If both pictures are 'heavily cropped' the DOF cannot be a factor, even if the 5D was used at 105mm with f/4.

I also think the 5D should be many times better than XZ-1 in low light, and this is a flawed comparison. 'just for fun', but people are already jumping to conclusions in this thread ...
