Canon EOS-1D X Mark II Studio Tests (by DPReview)

DPReview published their test studio test results for the new Canon EOS-1D X Mark II full frame DSLR camera. Their tests include the RAW dynamic range and ISO performance:

Raw Dynamic Range

The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II shows very similar amounts of noise to the excellent sensor in the Sony a7R II up until a 3EV push, with the Canon dropping behind after a 4EV push. It’s a similar story against the likes of the Nikon D750 or D810. This means that the darker shadows in a processed image would be slightly cleaner in images from these cameras, after contrast adjustments or a less extreme push.

However, this performance is noticeably better than the Canon EOS 5DS R and, significantly, better than the 1D X II’s most direct rival: the Nikon D5.

High ISO Performance

Although the 1D-X II shows significant increase in dynamic range at low ISOs in our dynamic range tests, high ISO Raw performance remains fairly similar to its predecessor, which is actually impressive considering the 1D-X II gains dual-pixel architecture for decisive video AF. Noise performance falls slightly behind the Nikon D5 (and even the Sony a7R II when normalized) at very high ISOs.

Reminder: The new Canon EOS-1D X Mark II flagship full frame DSLR camera is already shipping in the US, but “Temporarily out of stock” at AmazonB&HAdorama.
