image quality comparison 5Diii vs M5

In another thread on the new M6ii, a question came up where I thought it would be very interesting to compare sensor quality of the new camera against that of the ff eos R (or 5Div) with equivalency adjusted out with zoom and aperture, and shot via the same lens (at different focal lengths for same field of view)...

It occurred to me that I could do that kind of test with the 2012 22MP 5Diii vs the 2016 24mp M5... with the ef24-70Lii. So here it is. Curious what your various eyeballs will tell you. My eyeball is seeing no discernible difference at iso 100. The M5 adjusted .3 ev to match exposure. Opened via Photoshop ACR with no lens correction or sharpening applied. stack and align as you see fit. exif data intact.

Here is a link to a .zip with the raw files
