David Bergman, who was recently made a Canon “Explorer of Light”, shot an incredible project for the Canon Expo 2015. Equipped with an EOS 5Ds R he took 825 photos of the Yankee Stadium, 50 megapixels each, which he sticked together during a long and intensive post processing. But the result was worth the effort. The final picture has a resolution of 20,000 megapixel, making it the biggest picture of a live event ever shot! The detail is sheerly astonishing.
Bergman also said he was really happy with the Canon equipment.
Check out the video above where he talks about the photo and explains how he did it.
ephotozine posted a comparison between the Canon EOS 5Ds R and the Sony Alpha a7RII. The two cameras belong to different product families (mirrorless vs DSLR) but have both high resolution sensors (Sony 42MP and Canon 50MP).
While I recommend you read the review to learn the whole story, have a look at an excerpt of the conclusion:
Whether the Sony Alpha A7R II is for you or not, depends on your shooting style, as well as whether you are currently invested in any system. If you wanted to switch to a smaller system, with more modern features, then the Sony Alpha A7R II certainly delivers an impressive range of features, as well as impressive image quality and noise performance. However, it would be particularly useful to check what lenses you would use with the Sony A7R II and whether they would deliver the results you wanted. If you have a number of Canon lenses, and are particularly familiar with Canon EOS 5D series cameras, then the 5DS R would make a great choice as the top of the range Canon EOS DSLR. Read the review.
I think the Alpha a7RII is somewhat overhyped, but it also is a feature-packed and innovative mirrorless camera.

Ming Thein is a Nikon shooter. He tested the EOS 5Ds R, and says:
It is clear to me that neither Nikon nor Canon can claim to be decidedly superior at the moment, each with their own strengths and weaknesses – much like their equivalent lens lineups. Canon lacks Nikon’s new f1.8G primes, but Nikon lacks all of the special purpose stuff and some of the zooms – there is no 17 TSE, for starters. There’s no question that if I were a Canon shooter, I’d be very happy at the moment: you have a tool that’s miles ahead of anything else in the system, can hold its own against the competition most of the time, and can pull ahead if the conditions are right. If I shot only subjects under which I could satisfy those conditions – in a studio, or perhaps landscape or architecture – it would be very easy to justify a complete switch.
And: “Since my glass investment is already F mount, it is with great sadness, I have to bid the 5DSR goodbye. I’m missing it already“. There is more. Considerations, comparisons, beautiful sample pictures. Read the review.
