High ISO Image Comparison: Canon 5D Mk II vs Canon 5D Mk III

Yesterday, we did a quick comparison of three cameras. But today, we’re featuring the 5D Mk II and 5D Mk III shooting the same image with the 50mm f1.4 at the same settings. Can you tell which one is which?

EDITOR’S NOTE: Image one is from the 5D Mk III, Image 2 is from the 5D Mk II. Thanks for trying!

Gear Used


The cameras were both set to ISO 6400, 1/100th and F4. The white balance was changed to be the same in post-production and the clarity and sharpness were boosted to the same levels.

No peeking at the EXIF data! We will do more tests in our full review.
