5D photo looks like it preserved slightly more detail but other than that I can't tell a difference even pixel peeping.

From what I have seen in office relative low HD monitor, part of 5D photos has a bit of over-exposure with details a bit overblown. It should set -1/3 EC on 5D as it's known having +1/3 EV over-sensitive than standard ISO. Despite 5D received more exposure, it's clear that 5D reserves details better in bright sky for example that confirmed what I experienced. As I said before with my own experience, 5Dc performs relative better under soft light if such test was done in a cloudy day for example.

Yea. This proves that theres much to it than this whole MP debate though than just mere pixels that determine image quality.

Heck someone can take an iso 100 photo from a 40D, upres it to 20MP, compare it to a 60D 18MP photo taken at iso 800 and the 40D photo could look magnitudes better.

Not to mention that theres so many different variables that determine overall image quality me personally, I believe that MPs plays the smallest role of them all when it comes to image quality especially with upressing possible and lenses being MP limited due to pixel density on crop bodys.

Personally I wish that Canon would scale back the MP's on their crop bodys to say 14MP and focus on increasing dynamic range with their crop bodys.

I'm perfectly happy with my crop body though and it's only 10MP yet I find it has to discern between photos taken with it compared to say a 60D and 5Dmkii at lower isos (sometimes the lower MP photos actually appear to retain more detail compared to the 60D).
