Canon 1DX Mark II is better than Nikon D5 - DXOMark Lab

I have seen and published more than hundred of test results of DXO Mark Lab, In general the DXO Mark Lab give low points to Canon camera during test due to lousy performance of the Canon sensors.

But today I was really surprised to see that Canon flasghsip camera 1DX Mark II scored better result compared to Nikon D5 in sensor test examination.

Despite of showing a 3.3 Million ISO range in the Specification sheet Nikon D5 failed to impress DXOMark Lab engineers with its performance and Canon 1DX Mark II with a low range [409600] on specification sheet performed better compared to the Nikon D5.

We have created a pie chart to to give you a seance of knowledge about the difference between the test score and the specification sheet data.

This is a well-deserved result for Canon, and this versatile sensor should prove attractive to a wide range of photographers, including those that work in multiple disciplines. The wide dynamic range at low ISOs should appeal to all photographers, but especially those using it for landscapes, and the low noise at high ISOs will also appeal to action and sports photographers. Although the new model is aimed primarily at that market, the increase in pixel count over its predecessor now matches that of the earlier EOS-1Ds Mk III, a model that’s still highly regarded for editorial and commercial work. It is not too much of a stretch to view the new EOS-1D X Mk II as the natural successor to that camera, and its wide range of capabilities, including DCI 4K video, make it look highly tempting. Sure, it would have been great to see a higher pixel count, but overall, the sensor performance offers photographers the versatility to tackle a wide range of assignments with just one camera.

    I am Glad that first time Canon is able to score better numbers than Nikon.

    Still in DXO Mark test chart many Nikon camera showing better result than Canon

    But my question is How a Canon Hybrid Sensor can score better than Nikon D5 sensor, is DXO Mark lab is now owned by Canon ? we have to find out.

  • NikonPro

    We have to be fair on this

    Nikon D5 sensor architecture was a very big mistake ever done.

    They tweaked the design and they failed.

    The sensor does have better score in the specification sheet but failed multiple times.

    Being a Nikon user I am still using Nikon D4s and waiting for a real successor.

  • stella

    It’s all due to new AD converter over the sensor.

    I am planning to get one 1DX Mk II but my body-friend doesn’t have cash 🙁

    Being a Nikon user I can’t touch Canon camera, but I can gift you 1DX if you wish.

  • Yogi Mik

    Stella! There’s a simple solution to your problem.
    Just get a new body-friend with cash 😉

    I still think the same. Technologically the Canon D1x2 be great, but for those who do vertical photograph, the first line of 5 points, only sensitive to horizontal lines I find disappointing. I want this to say, not being cross, tracking the subject is much lower, so if you want precision of focus have to go to the 2nd line. With what we are again, in the middle of the frame, ………………………. +/- Half the sensor.

    Sigo pensando lo mismo. Tecnológicamente la Canon D1x2 será una maravilla, pero para los que hacemos fotografía vertical, que la primera línea de 5 puntos, solo sea sensible a las líneas horizontales me parece DECEPCIONANTE. Quiero esto decir, que al no ser en cruz, el seguimiento del motivo es muy inferior, con lo que si quieres precisión de foco tienes que irte a la 2ª línea. Con lo que estamos otra vez, a la mitad del encuadre,………………………. +/- a la mitad del sensor.

    The score looks even. Did I miss something?

  • zackd

    Or better still… ditch all body friends and buy a camera body yourself😄

    Unless I sensing I gold digger😐

  • robert

    I shoot the 1DX. I am waiting for a more significant leap in resolution before I upgrade. 50mb+
