Now try to frame the same shot, by choosing a longer focal length on 6D and compare the results. M @ 24mm f4, vs 6D @ 38mm f6.3, Now who's sharper?
Good point. I re-did the test using a borrowed 70-200 2.8 II lens for both shots. See below.
I have a funny feeling the high ISO NR settings were set differently on both cameras..
The M should have the same IQ as a 650D since it's the same sensor..
The 6D being a FF camera should be better than the M..
I was thinking the same thing. I shot the 2nd and 3rd set of pictures in RAW so the JPG settings (like high ISO NR, sharpening, white balance, etc.) difference between the two cameras would not affect the outcome. RAW converted to highest resolution JPG in Canon Digital Photo Professional in batch mode (all settings the same).
Test #3. Same lens, EF 70-200 2.8 II IS, RAW
(1) EOS-M, 125mm, 1/160, f4.5, ISO100, flexizone single, on monopod
(2) EOS-6D, 200mm, 1/1500, f2.8, ISO400, AF, on monopod
I intentionally used a higher ISO on the 6D shot so I could use a faster shutter speed to minimize effects of camera shake on the monopod, so if anything the 6D should have an advantage there.
The white balance was messed up on the shot from the M, but I don't have access to Lightroom or other software to correct it. DPP probably can do this, but I'm not familiar with it.
