Canon 5D Mark II – Image Quality

So far I’ve mostly been writing about the 5D Mark II’s video mode. This evening I was able to get out to the coast and make some still images like the one below. I’m pleased to say that the image quality seems to be at least as good as the 1Ds Mark III.

Take a look at this 100% crop. I shot RAW and applied my normal amount of unsharp mask. Tons of detail and the shadows look good too. ISO 100, 1.6 seconds at f/11. A split ND filter was used to balance the sky with the foreground.
