Canon Professional Network published an interview with Mr. Tsunemasa Ohara, Senior General Manager of Camera Research and Development at Canon Inc., the mastermind behind the development of the 50 MP Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R.

From the interview:

CPN: What are the key technical advantages of the cameras compared to existing competitor high-resolution DSLRs and medium format cameras?

Tsunemasa Ohara: In terms of megapixels, the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R are almost the same as a medium format camera and offer the same levels of image quality too. The key advantage from an EOS perspective is that handling and mobility is much better than a medium format camera. This is a major advantage with our product because it is smaller and lighter and can be used in a wider variety of situations.

Canon EOS 5DS & 5DS R Technical Review by Tony Northrup (and thoughts on lens resolution)

Tony Northrup does an exhaustive technical review of Canon’s new EOS 5DS and 5DS R (preview videos). There is a lot of talk about resolution and how much resolution modern lenses have. He does some math do compute a “perceptual resolution”, i.e. an approximate figure of an optic’s resolution, to get an idea on how well a given lens could do on the 5DS and 5DS R sensor.
