Akiba Interactive Review: 5D vs. 5D Mark II

Requested by IppikiOkami during AF Canon EOS 5D Mark II Test, here’s a comparative picture quality during the day(ISO50, 100 and 320 with 50mm1.4 and 14mm2.8 Lenses) and night (ISO100, 800, 1600, 3200, 12800 and 25600 * with 135mm2.0 lens) between the 5D and 5D Mark II.

David goofed and set the Exposure Compensation at +2/3 for 5D Mark II night shots … but it still allows us to compare the noise, and see that ISO 3200 on the 5D Mark II is very similar to the basic 5D @ 800 ISO… Moreover, the 5D Mark II provides a 21Mpix sensor vs. the 5D’s 13Mpix!

* 5D Mark II only.

Download the sample after the jump .

    IMHO
    I cant see a hughe difference of sharpness in the daylight shots BUT in the night shots there is a clear winner in sharpnnes wich is the mk2.
    Why is this difference in favour of mk2?

    The low noise in the mk2 is amazing

    I am to understand that it is the Digic 4 processor logrithms that are working to reduce the noise at higher ISO’s. Quite well I might add. I guess that the real test will be when it is possible to compare a couple of RAW high ISO images between the 5D and Mark II as this be be without post processing as in the jpegs.

  • sergey

    I’m pretty sure that’s not only the processor which is better.
    The RAW pictures from 1Ds Mark II are better than 5D (according to dxomark.com lab tests), so no wonder that 5D Mk II kills them all
    2 ISO steps is great.
    I wonder if that comparison is made in absolute size pictures or in downsized to 12 mp.
