Canon EOS 5Ds & 5Ds R Sensor Review and Test Results

DxOMark published their sensor review and test results for the 50MP Canon EOS 5Ds & 5Ds R full-frame DSLR cameras.

Canon EOS 5Ds gets 87 points sensor score while 5Ds R gets 86 points sensor score: Both are the best sensor score ever tested on a Canon EOS sensor. But they are behind the latest Nikon and Sony full-frame sensors, such as the Nikon D810 with 97 points and Sony A7r with 95 points. So the DxOMark reviewed the Canon EOS 5Ds & 5Ds R Sensors like this: Best Canon scores for Color Sensitivity and Dynamic Range.

Conclusions from DxOMark:

Boasting an unprecedented 50.6Mp resolution, the EOS 5DS and 5DS R offer a unique DSLR shooting solution. What’s more, our industry standard tests have shown these are the best sensor results yet for a Canon chip, with the 5DS cameras offering a small step up for image quality against other full-frame semi-pro models such as the EOS 6D and EOS 5D Mark III. Our measurements show that there’s very little difference between the 5DS and 5DS R sensors, but we’ve seen both models post better scores in print results compared to those on screen.

As usual, the best scores are recorded at each sensor’s base ISO setting, and here the 5DS sensors are a little off the pace against the best chips we’ve analyzed (in the Nikon D810 and the Sony A7R). This is particularly true for Dynamic Range, where the Nikon and Sony models boast around a two-stop advantage at base ISO, although the gaps narrows as sensitivity is increased.

With its massive resolution and best results in print, the EOS 5DS and 5DS R are great solutions for photographers shooting at low ISO sensitivities for large scale prints.
