Tareq,
You should post that in one jpeg file, side by side, so people can compare.

I will post the RAW files of both bodies here so each can check the original size from both formats.

For now, see how far i can go with MF file.

My brother just got the Hasselblad 31 MP medium format and it's big and heavy and amazingly hard on a computer to download the images. I have the 5D2. If you compare cost vs. results, I'd say I'll keep my 5D2 and 24-70 and 70-200 2.8 IS and prime lenses, thanks. My brother has to carry 9 pounds of camera and lens all day long, and it can't be fun. If you have the money to upgrade to FF, go for it! I don't have the money, or the muscles to carry the gear. :) The 5D2 is just right for what I use it for, events, portraits, and landscapes.

35mm digital doesn't hold a candle compared to Medium Format digital in terms of resolution or dynamic range. MF backs, though, are big, heavy, extremely expensive, and aren't designed for ISOs much beyond their base ISO (usually 50 or 100).

if the OP actually means APS-H and not medium format, then now we see the problem of calling 35mm "full frame".

I think, in the context of POTN, it's safe to call 35mm, full frame :-)

To much semantics here which, at the end of the day, is a lot of wasted bandwidth, imo.

Im guessing Ill waste some more space - Full Frame is someting that refers to the original measures of film, be it 35mm 6x6 etc.... has nothing to do with MF which is Medium Format which is in between 35mm and Large format film :)

To the OP ... apologies for the thread hijack

Since tareq posted comparisons between the Hassy and Canon I wanted to demonstrate the resolution of the 5DII with a Leica APO R Emarit 100 Macro (the sharpest lens I have ever used). Note the 100 is mounted on a tripod 8 feet from my 27" LCD TV, ISO 200, 2.8 aperture, evaluative meter, sharpness 2 in DPP no PP except for the print which had to be reduced to fit POTN standards. Here is the original print and a 100% crop showing a single pixel bounding box. As we will see it's not for lack of resolution in the 5DII that generates soft images. The crops are small to maximize .jpg IQ. This is why I am satisfied with the 5DII as a medium format grade imaging system.

Here is a 200% and 600% crop ... the 100 APO out resolves the 5DII's 22MP sensor.
