Dpreview about the Canon 50MP sensor: “won’t be able to offer the same industry-leading dynamic range of Sony sensors”

A7r vs 5ds by CameraSize.

Dpreview added an interesting note about the new Canon 5ds 50MP sensor:

As far as dynamic range is concerned, we’re told that the new 5DS and 5DS R should give the same performance as the current EOS 5D Mark III. If true, this means that the new cameras won’t be able to offer the same industry-leading dynamic range of Sony’s current APS-C and full-frame sensors, but at least it isn’t a step backwards.

Well, sound sreally like the A7rII (or A9) could beat the Image Quality delivered by that new Canon 50MP 5Ds.
