With this lens tested in front of most Canon DSLRs and MILCs, many direct comparisons can be made. The first comparison I wanted to see was the EOS M5 vs. EOS 80D. As I mentioned before, I initially expected these two cameras to be equals in the image quality department. While they may indeed be equals, Canon's RAW conversion algorithm generates a less-sharp M5 image with lower noise being the benefit. Prefer sharper? Simple: increase the sharpness setting by 1.
Here is the EOS M5 vs. EOS Rebel T6i/T6s comparison.
BTW, I'm really liking this little camera!
