This isn't meant to be a troll thread, but take it as you will...
94 vs 81... I only thought to look at comparisons after I heard my pro photographer friend talking about it--he said he was gonna do some side-by-side testing of his own.
These DxOMark tests are pretty objective, aren't they?
like I said, I'm not trying to be a troll. Lately I've been frustrated with being stuck with this rebel for at least a little while. (Each passing moment seems like months). The main reason why I'm frustrated with the rebel is not because I want more bokeh, more wide shots, and be able to use nice long lenses more like the 135L.....it's mostly because I feel like I can't get the skin tones...color depth...rich/vibrant--yet, organic color to skin tones in portrait. I feel like most of the time if I want any pop at all the color looks artificial. I shoot in raw and try to shoot at low ISO..100 if possible..and use lr4.
Looking at DXO comparison site, I can see how much improvement that full frames like the 5D mark 1,2,3 have in the portrait color depth compared to my camera...and even non rebels like 50D and 7D.
And then I see how older nikons and cheap new nikons have better color depth and dynamic range, etc and score significantly higher than even the 5D series....!!!???
