    My 5DS

    So I have been using the 5DS for months now. And let me say this. i could not be happier. Its mainly geared towards Portraits and landscape photographers. The only way to get the most out this camera is to have great glass. 70-200 2.8 II IS, 85mm 1.2II, 35mm 1.2II 24-70mm 2.8II IS, 16-35 F4 IS, 135mm F2, 100mm 2.8 IS, Otus 55mm 1.4, 85mm 1.4, Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art, 135 Zeiss Oppa Sonnar F2. Here is the sad part. ISO performance is poor. I would never go down ISO 400 or even 100 in that matter. 5 FPS is pretty amazing. The feel in the hans is the same if not lighter that the 5DM III. I can't help but say the sharpness is incredible. I don't want to forget to say that the dynamic range is not as good as the 5DMkIII. If u have studio strobes and good glass then u will have the best combination u can have. Because then u will control the light, and not have your camera struggle to reach that ISO. Also if u are shooting under 1/200 sec. U need a tripod. All the information u are receiving from the lens is large and the sensor need to be still even if u have IS. My file sizes are 86mb RAW. 388TIFF 32mb jpeg. I really hopes this helps. Since most websites cannot handle all this. i convert from raw to tiff to PNG i avoid jpeg at the most. U need a hard drive for sure. This camera doesn't have the headphone jack so not geared for video shooters. I love this camera hope u will too.

    I have the Canon 5ds already for a year and let me tell you, you will not be disappointed, at these time I had the chance to take it to the extremes and it has proven to be the best. I am a travel and landscape photographer and from all the equipment I have tried in the past the 5ds is on the top. The 50 megapixels will let you do inimaginable things.

    Have only begun to use it to break it in, but so far I love it. Solid build, well machined, fast capture with the dual digic6 processors. Can't wait to explore all it's features. Image quality so far is superb.

    There are a lot of megapixels so even on a full frame, you need good light. So I set my max ISO at 800 to avoid digital noise. The photos are outstanding in the amount of detail and dynamic range.

    I have owned this camera for over a year. I absolutely love it. Although the high iso quality is not as good as the 5d Mk3, the resolution makes up for it. I love it.
