It seems that some detail is still present in the soft images.
Maybe to much sharpening for this jpg,but maybe a good sign for the RAW files.

Example (from the Canon website) and cropped and saved at quality 8 due to filesize.
The focus is on her left eye.

well thankfully it's an eyeball that is in focus, coming from a 5d III.  Maybe i don't have to cancel my preorder now.. i just can't believe they would give out such bad test files, wow.

I hear ya.  There are some new RAWs up at Imaging Resource...and they look quite good to me.  Those first jpegs..scary.

Just for kicks. Was curious if you went bak to prerelease 5D mark II what was happening - were people having the same issues before launch?


Back when the 5D mark 2 was being launched -
Threads about it being soft.

Why not buy the Nikon D700 instead the old threads cried?

People crushed the 5d2 when it first came out saying it was soft... The complaints went away eventually but people will see what they want to see. 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, Canon 85 1.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.
