Good examples here:

I own both - and the best shots with the 5DSr are sharper - but only when pixel peeping 100% view and only perfect shots. In practice I find not too much difference in real use and got a very good price on a 5DS used, much lower at the time to a 5DSr - otherwise I'd just use the r. Very rarely see moire in my subjects

I just remembered something that I found a little while ago. Basically, if you increase the sharpness with both the 5Ds and the 5Ds R, the resultant image is nearly identical -- and that's because the 5Ds affords more latitude for sharpening before the image looks overly sharp.

Would you comment on whether you agree with that?
