The Canon EOS 5DS vs. the 5DS R


With Canon’s introduction of the high-resolution, full-frame 50.6MP CMOS sensor in the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R DSLRs, many photographers are wondering which model is best for them. Luckily, there is only one major difference between the two cameras, and that is the implementation of a low-pass filter (LPF) cancellation effect in the 5DS R.

Most DSLRs, including the EOS 5DS, use a low-pass filter to eliminate false colors and moiré that can be created when shooting finely detailed repeating effects or patterns, by splitting the light points before they reach the sensor. The use of this filter makes the EOS 5DS DSLR a good fit for most users, as it is suited to use in a wide range of applications. The EOS 5DS R uses a separate filter to cancel this effect, to capture the maximum resolution and sharpness possible, though at a greater risk of aliasing and moiré. This makes the 5DS R useful for photographers who have complete control over their scene, require the highest resolution possible, and/or have time to spend working on images during post processing.

Do you know when they will be in stock?

Currently Canon anticipates to begin fulfilling pre-orders on 6/14/2015.

I'm sure it's too expensive for normal humans to buy anyway!  I go with a Nikon D610 when i can afford one!

There is a Vertical separation filter in the 5DSR which is then canceled out.  Why?   Would it not be easyer not to have the slpitter filter in the first place?  

For a person who is can neither spell or type well, nor proof reads or edits before publishing, what difference does it make to you? 

Because his question was about the camera, not grammar.   P.S.  You should practice what you preach about proof reading before trolling people. 

For a definitive answer, you would need to contact Canon.  Though, Nikon did the same thing with the D800E when they were making two versions of the D800.  It might have to do with keeping costs down on the cameras: keeping the bodies the same and not needing to design a new body.

I can only imagine that it's a dollar amount difference. Perhaps it is more expensive to build the sensor and place it in the camera without the anti-aliasing filter than to just slap another filter on top of it.

Apoyo el comentario, debe ser que las empresas piensan que como algun profesional tiene la capasidad de manejar su camara sin ese filtro; que ellos tienen la necesidad de poner, para no tener que hacerse cargo de reclamos posteriores; simplifican hacen un producto que puede logra mayor calidad , se evitan un gasto recaudan más dinero


I understand what they would have to do is to completely redesigned the camera in order to take it out so it was cheaper to do it this way. please don't judge my grammar and spelling.
