Why are the RAWs 4-6 mb? My 50d RAWs are 18+/- mb.

I just downloaded a raw... was 24.6 MB...

Sorry for my earlier post. I didn't see the RAW (CR2) files to be downloaded. How could I miss those??

I will go home and open in DPP. Then, and only then, can I pixel peep and scrutinize every freaking fine detail!!

But I promise to keep my opinion to myself. It's better for me, anyway. And for the record, I am still amazed at what the 5dII can do. It's hard to best a living legend, my friends.

You can not open them in DPP

Use CS5 and the Adobe Camera RAW 6.7 Beta.

Abcourse they look somewhat soft !!!!!

Zero sharpening is apllied.
I guess you are viewing raw with a viewer (or whatever)

You have to process the RAW files in CS5 with the Camer RAW 6.7 Beta and see how much detail is present in the RAW file............

Plugged the raw, especially the turquoise dress shot, plugged it into photoshop with the beta camera raw... Sharpened a tad, looked quite impressive...  When the 5d2 first came out and the realization (at the time) that I couldn't afford the camera, it really changed how i viewed the camera, how I perceived... I could see any photo and point out ever flaw in it taken by that camera... after owning that camera the viewpoint has changed... fact is we can analyze and pick apart and see what we want to see... it's human nature and basic psychology... The measurebators can have a field day when the camera comes out and Dxo and DPR does their in depth tests... In the end, still to this day, there are people who love the 7d and use it professionally, and others who call it soft, say it has low IQ, etc...  It's not going to please everybody, but for me, I like what I see and the potential.

OMG. Thats the decision maker for. I will definitely switch to Nikon. Looks like from compact camera. There's nothing to wait for (test, reviews). It shows clearly what Canon did with it's SUPER digic5+....sad.

bye bye!

Well maybe sad...
Maybe it can be disabled in the menu ?

Well for me no Issue I NEVER take JPG's.
If for some reason I have made a wrong exposure or whatever there is MUCH more to save with a RAW file.

Maybe Canon expected more people to use RAW files with a 3500 EURO DSLR....
But indeed the JPG are a bit dissapointed ( so where the 5D Mark II jpg and we know how good this DSLR is) , but maybe the sharpness setting was at 0 ???

No you don't. A RAW file should be crisp. If it's not, there's an issue with the sensor.

Excuse me ?
Something wrong with the sensor ?

All RAW files look a bit soft as they are unprocessed. How soft depends on the quality of the lens and the focussing.

If you are getting soft RAW files when using sharp lenses on a tripod in good light conditions, it's probably a heavy AA filter or a soft sensor. See the 7D.

I have processed most of the RAW files and they look good.
If someone else thinks otherwise then they should not buy the 5D Mark III, period.
It is very simple if you don't like what you see then don't buy it.

Try reading all topics when the 5D Mark II was released.
Almost the same complains.
Well we all know what the 5D Mark II is capable of.
