Some interesting (and yet unverified) news coming from people testing a pre-production EOS 5DS surfaced.
Northlight Images received a comment from a user testing a pre-production 5DS with DPP4. It appears that at low ISO the dynamic range of the EOS 5DS is 1.5-2 stops better than the EOS-1D X, while high ISO performance (i.e. ISO 6400) falls slightly behind the EOS 7D Mark II. The same comment/rumor says the 5DS sensor is similar to the 7D2 sensor from a technological point of view (puzzles me), and that the 5DS sensor has been tuned to deliver the best possible low ISO performance.
