Justin, how are you finding the 5DS? Any thoughts on how the 24 pairs with it?


Wee single shot from me, just nipped out to Tesco for crisps and wine (don't judge me):

I'm not sure I can give a full testimonial at this point, since I really haven't had a chance to put the combo through its paces. However, I think I've decided to stick with the 5Ds for the foreseeable future – as far as I'm concerned, it's a very strong direct replacement for my MkIII. For my general use, I can't find anything that the 5Ds lacks from the MkIII (a lot of folks say the 5Ds is not as strong in low light, but I haven't found this to be the case at all.) Realistically, I think I could leave the 5Ds on the mRaw setting (28mp) and not notice any difference between this and my previous MkIII, neither in functionality nor image output. To me, that's a very good thing and means that the [Shockingly*] small price difference between my MkIII and the used 5Ds I bought was, in retrospect, a no-brainer (even if only for the fact that it's a newer camera with a nicer sounding shutter [haha.])

That said, the features that it does offer over the MkIII are simply incredible. The resolution is obviously the main feature and is just as spectacular as you might imagine. Zooming in on the raw files has not yet ceased to amaze me and the quality difference after scaling down is absolutely noticeable. One thing that I didn't think about prior to buying, but that has since been really useful, is the ability to zoom in much closer during Live View focusing than I could with the MkIII. Even with the wider 24mm, I can often zoom in on the smallest branches or flowers in Live View to set the focus distance correct. This is obviously a huge advantage for tripod shooting with the TS-E. Some other features I've found useful for TS-E shooting are the variable mirror-lock-up settings (1/8, 1/4, 1/2 sec, etc selections instead of the double-click style on the MkIII), the active viewfinder crop settings, and the built-in bulb timer and intervalometer.

I'll keep shooting with it and develop my opinion more as I go, but for now, I have nothing but great things to say about it! In my limited experience, it's been the very best camera to squeeze every bit of resolution out of the TS-E 24.

*I found a great combo deal on a like-new 5Ds/24-70II kit on eBay. After selling the 24-70 and my MkIII, my out-of-pocket upgrade cost was less than $400 USD - worth it for me, even from a simple resale value perspective.

Couldn't have asked for a better review, even if your perspective is limited at this stage. Thank you very much - I can definitely appreciate the zooming in resolution in Live View can make your life easier and potentially avoid losing out of focus shots. I fear having to upgrade my PC when I upgrade to such a resolution, despite how magnificent it might be!

Easily fits into the same carrier bag as the crisps and wine, and saves 5p in the process! 8-)

I have a pretty solid, but not particularly cutting-edge, PC due to my main income coming from graphic design and print-production (i7 3.4ghz, 32gb ram, AMD HD 6800 GPU.) I've be pleasantly surprised that the larger files have not really caused too much headache after switching from the MkIII. Admittedly, the pano above certainly took longer to merge than if it were shot with the MkIII. However, if it's slowed down my overall workflow, it hasn't been overly noticeable. That said, my server capacity will definitely start to feel it if I keep shooting everything at full resolution, haha. I think I may be on the lookout for a slightly bulkier RAID setup this year on Cyber Monday. :-D

the biggest upgrade to a PC needed is some RAM and storage space...I don't have the 5Ds series..but the A7R2 and the 14 bit uncompressed RAW files are +/-88 MB each...a multilayer image in PS easily gets close to a gig...so the RAM helps work with the files a little better but the storage space becomes necessary to store it all...

A problem I got with my lens is the insane sharpness at f4 and f5,6. The lens outresolve the camera sensor and that shows up as artefacts like zig zag pattern in lines. Not a problem in prints but cropped on screen it look not that good and is impossible to get rid off in post. Just wonder if the sensor in 5DS will handle the sharpness better than the sensor with lower resolution like 6D?

Cool shots and great light. Last time I was standing in that spot, there were dozens of naked people riding by on bicycles. Was not a pretty scene.

Nice; a real life tilt-shift building! You can imagine the architect thinking to himself "Ok photographers, straighten these verticals!"
