Is it worth upgrading to the 5DS R?

Following up on Canon 5DS R: Sharpness, Noise, Monochrome Potential, this triple approach comparison is highly instructive, and compelling in favor of the 5DS R, at least for those looking for highest image quality in large prints. But it also applies to higher image quality for outputting smaller files.

Sharpness: 5DS R vs 5D Mark III (Mosaic)

There are several ways to compare different-resolution cameras, butall three of these approaches are shown.

  • Upsample both to some common, higher resolution—this simulates a very large print.
  • Show the actual pixels from each camera—what does each actually deliver?
  • Downsample the higher-res camera to the lower-res resolution—per pixel quality for the same image at the same resolution.
