Canon EOS 40D vs 5D

For further photography-related information check out my compendium of tips.

One of my friends bought a Canon EOS 40D recently and complained that he was never able to get a pin-sharp shot with it. I therefore borrowed it for an evening recently to compare it with my 5D under 'test' conditions - using a tripod, shutter release, adjusting for crop factor with focal length etc. The results from the 40D were so disappointing (top crop above) that I think he probably has got a faulty example, and I recommended he send it back to Canon to be checked out. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there with faulty cameras who are just unaware of the results they should be getting - make sure you're not one of them!
