Re: First Week w/ 6D....from 5D Mk II

I am glad that you are enjoying 6D and you see a huge improvement in DR compared to 5DII. I can't question your judgement as you area talking from your own experience. I hardly see any difference though except for shadow lifting. 6D has less noise in shadows (and no banding), so depending on circumstances that may translate into some usable DR improvement.

Few weeks ago I did a test with 5DII, 5DIII and 6D.


6D RAW, converted in LR and further adjusted in Photo Ninja

5DII RAW, similar conversion with same settings

Virtually no difference. There were more noise in 5DII file and slight banding in few areas when looked at 100%, but no problem with colors or detail.

EDIT: I should say, similar settings were applied, not exactly same. Initial processing was done few weeks ago, so I can't remember exactly what I did. Maybe a little more NR for 5DII.
