Here you have two almost indetical images, 2 min time differance. One shot with 5DMii and the other with the G11...same settings, manual, resized in PS. I am a bit confused, I just got my 5DMII and been comparing the quality...I must say, G11 is a damn good camera. I guess i'll have to learn to drive my "ferrari", but still, can not be that G11 is giving me better results. So please tell me what do you think about those to images with out knowing which one is G11 and which one is 5D Mark II. Colors etc...
Thank you.
P.S. I am not sure if I am even asking the correct question or if is it posible to compare these cameras in way I just did...

the bottom is the 5D

imo, the way that you shot these photos does not really allow for the 5D to shine. they looked quite rushed and don't show what the cameras are capable of doing.

i think they both look like crap honestly. maybe learn to shoot off of the program modes and focus manually.

On this website you can compare the images from different cameras just select the 5dm2 and the G11, if you click on the image it opens up.

The top picture looks like there's more available light. During a sunset (looks like a sunset anyway), even 2 minutes can be a lot of time. Even with the extra light, the top pic looks either noisier or posterized, can't tell from the small image.

What kind of picture styles were you using, and white balance? I AM assuming you shot in JPG not RAW...

The shot from the G11 is also wider, which is more pleasing to the eye.

It truly is. If you had shot the 5D image first and then the G11 image, I bet you would have opposite results.

Now go shoot some portraits and let us know which camera is better. ;)

The image on the right looks like a darker exposure compared to the one on the right (which makes the colors look more vivid). You have to remember that there isn't perfect consistency between camera meters - even if the settings were identical, two cameras of the same model may read a scene slightly differently; two cameras of different models almost certainly will. What you're doing here starts to become apples to oranges...

It sounds like you're shooting in JPEG, not converting from RAW. If this is the case, are the "PictureStyle" settings the same on both cameras? (I don't remember if the G-series even has/lets you adjust PictureStyles.) If they're not the same, or if the G11 doesn't have the PictureStyles, then you're talking about a whole different set of JPEG processing on each image. Again, apples to oranges.

JPG and AWB and yes I agree that wider is more pleasing to the eye. :/
