playing with 5D mkII and mushrooms

Being Sigma user I quite often dream about switching to a camera with a larger sensor. Every now and then I look at some older photos shot on film and the DOF is just so much nicer there. So i took 5D mkII for a spin for a weekend. I was sure I would fell in love with it but at the and I have rather mixed feelings.
The camera is a pleasure to use and I took many more photos that I would have with my SD14. It is just too easy! But to be honest I expected better image quality. The amount of noise in the shadows is just staggering. Quite likely I didn’t use the camera in the most optimal way but still, ISO 100 even underexposured one f-stop should be noiseless.

On the other hand quite often Sigma users are raving about ‘film like’ quality of their photos, the best colors and so on. I was able to get the same look I’m used to from my Sigma with very simple corrections in lightroom. Cannot complain about 5D colors at all.
