Canon 5Ds and 5Ds R Announced

In a different twist, Canon has released a new 5Ds and 5Ds R with a new 50.6MP Sensor (Apparently they didn't want to just round down to an even 50) with 1.3x and 1.6x sensor crop modes similar to the Nikon D810. Dual Digic 6 processors power the camera to ensure faster processing of the likely massive files at up to 5fps. I have previously taken issue with the high signal noise and lack of deep shadows from my Canon files compared to the Nikon D810 so hopefully Canon has improved overall the overall image sensor in addition to increasing the megapixels. The rest of the camera looks and feels almost identical to the current Canon 5D Mark III with a 61pt AF system that curiously lacks the new dual pixel technology from other new Canon cameras. Canon is also placing an emphasis on their new Anti-Flicker technology which reduces variations in image exposure due to flickering light like fluorescent lamps. Canon is clearly placing the 5Ds and 5Ds R (Lacking a LPF filter) for studio high resolution photo capture. The 5Ds is not set to ship until June at the moment and is priced at $3699 for the 5Ds and $3800 for the 5Ds R.
