Canon 5Ds with 100mm F2.8L IS Macro, Sample Shots

When I upgraded to the 5Ds I was really worried that some of the lenses wouldnt be able to keep up with sharpness for such high resolution images.  I researched my list of lenses on DXOMark for their sharpness rating which they conveniently rate in MP.   Since they dont have the 5Ds included in their charts I used the 5D III ratings.  Here is what I found:

Canon 15mm fisheye:  Not Tested

Contax Zeiss N 24-85mm (converted to EOS mount by Conurus):  Not Tested

Canon 100mm F2.8L IS: 18MP DXO Sharpness Rating

Canon 85mm F1.2L II: 18MP DXO Sharpness Rating

Canon 70-200 F2.8L:  16MP DXO Sharpness Rating

So far all of these lenses, even the 15mm (non L glass) have yielded extremely sharp images. Here are some samples with the 100mm F2.8L IS Macro along with the 1:1 100% view at focus point. The first two were shot at 28MP and the second two were shot at 50MP. These were very informal, shot in our office space in dim ambient light from the desk lamp, all shot at ISO 1250
