Canon EOS 80D Sensor Review at DxOMark: Dynamic Performer

DxOMark published their sensor review and test results for Canon EOS 80D ($1,199 at AmazonB&HAdorama) APS-C DSLR camera. Canon EOS 80D‘s new sensor achieved an overall DxOMark score of 79 points – a new high watermark for Canon’s APS-C sensor designs, compared to Canon EOS 7D Mark II (at 70 points) and Canon EOS 70D (at 68 points). But it is still behind its competitors: Sony a6300 (at 85 points) and Nikon D7200 (at 87 points).

Conclusion from DxOMark:

The Canon EOS 80D has improved low ISO noise and a more useful dynamic range at and close to base ISO over its siblings. However, class-leading sensors such as those found in the Sony a6300 and the Nikon D7200 still have more usable dynamic ranges, and that’s not just at base, but at high ISOs as well.

While the results from the 80D on DR should appeal to landscape photographers who routinely adopt the base ISO setting, it’s worthwhile to remember that Canon probably had other priorities in mind when developing this sensor. While there may have been some trade-offs in DR at high ISOs, noise levels aren’t far behind the class leaders, and the Dual Pixel AF mode in live view and video looks promising for video and certain still applications. Lowering the noise floor at base while increasing pixel count remains an impressive feat, and ultimately the Canon EOS 80D sensor offers a pretty decent performance overall.
