In the meantime, here's an attempt to play with my new and old cameras to compare them. My old camera was a Digital Rebel XSi. Both shot at ISO400, 1/10 second, f/4.0, through Canon's 50mm f/1.4 lens. Turned out to be a terrible choice, as I had trouble holding the shot steady on either camera at those settings. Nonetheless, here they are. The first two photos are corrected only for lens distortion, and the color profile is changed to "Camera Standard" on both cameras, with the color temps then set equal. It's also worth noting that I had to crop the 5D image to get it to match the XSi image, so it's crop vs full-image comparison here.
Hard to tell much of a difference. The 5D's is colder, obviously. Not bad for a prosumer camera released in 2008, though it's worth noting again that the 5D's is cropped.
Though if I just let the 5D do its thing, then clean it up for noise and exposure, here's the result:
I shoulda done the same with the XSi.
