A member of the Fred Miranda Forums did some digging on Canon Japan’s web site and dug up full resolution sample images from the Canon EOS R5, Canon EOS R6, and all of the new lenses.

The sample images are a mix of shots using the Canon EOS R5, Canon EOS R6, RF 600mm f/11 IS STM, RF 800mm f/11 IS STM and the RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM along with current RF lenses such as the RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM and others.

I would like to see how DXOMark rank RF85 F1.2, etc., on R5, especially comparing to Otus lenses.

DP Review has already added the R6 to their test scene footage, it was interested to me to compare it to the 5DIV

How long do we think it will be before Bill @ PtP posts dynamic range info?

He wrote on the Dpreview forum that he started some measurements. He said he got the exactly same read noise as the 1DXmarkIII

I've been waiting the R5 but that shot of the R6 at 102K ISO is insane. it;s as clean as my 5d2 at 3200 lol

This is going to be such a nice bump in dynamic range over my 5D3 -- can't wait to see how it comes out, but this is a rough idea of what we'll find:

S/O to everyone saying that you couldn't blur backgrounds at f/11...
Did anyone actually say that?

It's a fact that a blurred background requires more separation at f/11 than say, f/2.8, but it's also a fact that if you can get the separation, you'll get blur.

For those that don't read the fred miranda forums as soon as these images were posted they decided most of them were crap. Not because of the hardware--though they weren't big fans of the 600/800mm lenses--but because they thought there were tons of photographer errors. To the point that they wondered if Canon specifically hired people to take the worst photos possible for samples.

Just curious what the CR crowd evaluation is.

Canon is quite (in)famous for having the most crappy sample pictures, so it isn't really surprising that people would say it about these as well.

I think the point was that some people may have underestimated how much the focal length matters. At 600mm or 800mm you're going to get blurred backgrounds no matter what. A 800mm f/2.8 would be a sight to behold, btw ;)

Does it come equipped with its own truck?

I know canon has been pushing a better less intrusive aa filter with the 1dxIII and what now seems like the R5 and R6, this is promising.

I really don’t like the lack of high ISO R5 images in this batch myself. Really looking forward to real reviews. Either way I’m very excited to purchase this camera early next year when the prices come down.

REALLY excited for these bodies and lenses. I went with the R5 kit with the 24-105 and the 100-500 on release day. Just ordered the 15-35 yesterday. I sold my 5dmiv a couple days ago and didn't even weep putting it in the mail. Although I am completely camera-less at the moment and only have the EF 16-35 iii to look at and hold, but it's up for sale also.

I'm all in on the new system and I couldn't be happier, and I don't think I will be disappointed either. :D

Those samples of the 100-500 are so sweet. Too bad that lens isn't slated for release until the end of September. :(
