DxOMark Published Their Canon EOS M5 Sensor Review: 77 Points


DXOMark completed their review of 24mp sensor inside the Canon EOS M5: The Canon EOS M5 Mirrorless Camera gets an outstanding overall DxOmark score of 77 points, 5 points ahead of the EOS M3 (72 points). Really great!


In our benchmarking, the Canon EOS M5 achieves a decent overall score of 77 points. Dynamic range is very good with a high 12.5 EV at base, of course, while achieving good balance in color depth at 23.4 bits and a low-light score of 1262 ISO, which while good, is still a little behind the better-performing sensors in APS-C format.  While the performance is mostly unchanged from previous models using a similar sensor, it’s still very good overall.

Canon-EOS-M5-review-at-DXOMark DxOMark from Conclusion:

On paper, the M5 looks like a mini-EOS 80D; however, that’s not quite the case. The built-in electronic viewfinder, the additional controls, and 7 fps burst with continuous AF (9 fps with AF locked) are all welcome additions. Taken together with the 24.2-MP Dual Pixel AF CMOS sensor and Digital IS, it all signals Canon’s intention to compete more seriously with rivals in the mirrorless segment.  With hindsight, it seems like the Dual Pixel AF CMOS was designed with mirrorless in mind. Image quality is similar to that of the sensor found on the EOS 80D.
