Canon 5DS R is a Sharper and More Versatile Monochrome Camera than Leica M Monochrom Typ 246

Get Leica M Monochrom Typ 246 and Canon 5DS R at B&H Photo.

I have no apriori acolyte views for Red Dot: I tell it like I see it when I shoot it, and I show it and prove it. And so it is with oversampling, namely oversampling in high-resolution color vs ho-hum resolution with a monochrome sensor in an aging defunct platform.

There are other priorities than image quality of course. If thos apply, they apply. But I stand firmly by what I show and prove in Guide to Leica in my analysis. That is, I show the power of tonal mapping by color versus baked-in boredom (with all too many monochrome raw files as my field shooting proved) and I show the superior sharpness of the Canon 5DS R.

This comparison is targeted at saving my readers money: I urge anyone considering the Leica M Monochrom Typ 246 to read this piece, worth the price of admission alone to Guide to Leica, given the $7450 price of the Leica MM246. For that money, you can have the Canon 5DSR with 50 megapixels and color and autofocus and huge lens selection and a Zeiss Otus.

Compared: Leica M Monochrom Typ 246 vs Canon 5DS R (Old Map)

With a very large actual pixels crop for the map, plus multiple crops from an upsampled (12,000 pixels wide) image for easy comparison. The differences shown are instructive.

Later (heading out for a trip), I plan to show 5DS R landscape and similar images as color and B&W toggle examples as I’ve done in the past. This piece is for the prospective Leica M Monochrom Typ 246 purchaser, and is therefore in Guide to Leica.

Canon 5DSR monochrome conversion, one of many possible variations
