I'm by no means a pro photographer, neither do i know the correct ways to test cameras or lenses. I just know certain things to look out for. Tonsers the man for all things pro else i thought i'd have a go at seeing what this camera is like for picking out detail in shaded areas, especial with bright backgrounds. woods on winter mornings can give some real tricky lighting situations, so i thought i'd venture up and see what the 5D MK2 could do. here's just a couple of tricky lighting situations, dark/shaded forground, and brightly lit backgrounds. This thing copped stunningly. there's no PS work, just work done in DPP (which is fricking amazing!) good buy PRS there not really framed or composed shots as such, just to show the detail captured on the dark side of the trees whilst not blowing highlights too much. pretty damn impressive i reckon.....BRAVO Canon!
