Canon 5DS R Optics

The Canon 5DS R is usually sold body-only, so we have no "kit" lens optical test results to share here.

Below are our Canon 5DS R viewfinder accuracy test results.

Viewfinder Test Results

Excellent accuracy from the optical viewfinder and from the LCD in Live View mode.

70mm, Optical Viewfinder 70mm, LCD Live View

We measured the Canon 5DS R's optical viewfinder's coverage at just over 99% which is very close to Canon's 100% coverage specification, especially when taking test tolerances into account. The resulting image was however slightly shifted vertically with respect to the sensor, which is unfortunately quite common with optical SLR viewfinders. Live View mode using the LCD monitor in record mode resulted in essentially 100% coverage.


The images above were taken from our standardized test shots. For a collection of more pictorial photos, see our Canon EOS 5DS R Photo Gallery .
