Jeff Keller has posted his review on Canon EOS 5D, a 12.4 Megapixel Digital SLR camera with 2.5″ LCD, with some samples at DCRP. Here’s what he says about the image quality:
“I have one thing to say about those results: WOW. Noise levels are incredibly low, even at ISO 1600, which is the cleanest image I’ve seen yet in this test. You should be able to make large prints without any issues on this camera. To see how the EOS-20D did at ISO 1600 (it’s quite similar to the 5D), click here.
Overall the EOS-5D’s photo quality was excellent. The camera took well-exposed photos with accurate color and low purple fringing levels. As for noise? Well, there isn’t much, as you’ve hopefully seen in these tests. I took many photos at the big SF Auto Show back in November at ISO 1000 and above, and all of the pictures could be printed at 8 x 10 or larger. As is the case with all D-SLRs, Canon has the in-camera sharpening turned way down, and if you want things to be sharper you can either increase that, or just post-process in Photoshop. “
