DxO has completed their review of the Canon EOS R5, and has scored the new 45mp sensor 95, which is the highest score ever for a Canon image sensor. I don’t think this should surprise anyone that has used the Canon EOS R5, as the image quality is stellar from the camera.
The sensors that are scoring higher than what Canon has put into its new mirrorless cameras are BSI image sensors, which can be found in the Nikon Z 7, and Z 7 II along with the Sony A7R III and A7R IV. However, DxO has found that Canon has closed the gap considerably.
As for sensor performance, the EOS R5 sensor represents a high watermark for Canon. The maximum dynamic range is competitive with the best in class, and the R5 sensor offers a useful advantage at some crucial ISO settings over its rivals. It also has excellent color and low noise at high ISOs, which all go toward making the Canon EOS R5 one of the most well-rounded performers in this important category. It may have taken a while to get here, but the Canon EOS R5 looks set to be the one to beat. Read the full review
