I like what I’m seeing with the Canon 5DS R.
Using the best DSLR lens available today, the Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 APO-Planar, I present this scene in three ways:
- What 50 Megapixels of Sharpness Looks Like (Dolls): images up to the full 8688 pixel resolution (intermediate sizes also) at f/5.6 and f/11, so readers can see exactly what 50 megapixels looks like, using the best optic available today.
- Noise at ISO 100, Native Resolution and at Canon 5DM3 Resolution. Shown as RGB along with the red/green/blue color channels and Gray Gamma 2.2 also.
- Monochrome Potential, thoughts vs Leica MM246 (Dolls). I have some distinct impressions to share and show, also up to full resolution. My recent work with the Leica M Monochrom Typ 246 is fresh in my mind and I think this is a must read for anyone considering the MM246.
This work should be very helpful to any prospective buyer of the Canon 5DS / Canon 5DS R.
As I’ll have no further need for my Canon 5D Mark III very soon, it is for sale ($2050). I have to shoot the latest and highest resolution camera body on each platform for my work, it’s that simple. So it needs a new home soon.
