DxOMark published the Canon EOS R5 sensor review and test results. Finally they have completed their tests and review of 45MP sensor inside the Canon EOS R5 full frame mirrorless camera ($3,899). As a result the Canon EOS R5 achieves an outstanding overall score of 95 points, with a combination of 25.3 bits color depth, 14.6 EV dynamic range, and 3042 ISO low-light.
With this sensor rating of 95 points, the Canon EOS R5 has a highly responsive sensor. Its score places it in 16th position in DxOMark database of full-frame and MF sensors overall; in 14th place for full-frame 35mm cameras; and in 1st place for Canon sensors.
See the review results in the table below, the new 45 MP EOS R5 sensor has excellent maximum dynamic range at base and it is close to the best-in-class (BSI) sensors throughout the ISO range.
From DxOMark‘s conclusion :
[…] the technical specifications – a high-resolution stabilized body, super-fast burst rates, highly capable dual-pixel AF II, and some incredible video capabilities – exceeded all expectations. But it wasn’t without some downsides. Extended 8K DCI and oversampled 4K video capture may have been a bit of stretch in such a highly compact body, but there’s no denying Canon really did push the boundaries of what’s possible.
As for sensor performance, the EOS R5 sensor represents a high water mark for Canon. Maximum dynamic range is competitive with the best in class, and the R5 sensor offers a useful advantage at some crucial ISO settings over its rivals. It also has excellent color and low noise at high ISOs, which all go toward making the Canon EOS R5 one of the most well-rounded performers in this important category. It may have taken a while to get here, but the Canon EOS R5 looks set to be the one to beat.
