Re: Is the 6D Mark II dynamic range worse than the 5D Marking 3?
It seems that the design of the 6D Mk Ii is meant to be more than desirable for nigh users than the 5D Mk III.
If one uses Canon DPP for processing, then it is a success. Else, with other processing, I read that care must be taken with magenta shadows for the 6D Mk 2, and with banding in the shadows for the 5D Mk III. But these are not insurmountable with other processors.

Re: Is the 6D Mark Ii dynamic range worse than the 5D Mark 3?
I’d be surprised if that’south the instance but I thought I’d enquire. The lenses and legendary Canon colours are across debate, but the choice of photographic camera is a bit more complicated for me. I would rather use 6D Mark II purely due to that flip out screen and impact to shoot option, but if the quality of the images is worse then the 5D Mark III then I’ll probably get that instead. This question relates merely to dynamic range and paradigm quality, as opposed to camera use/ features. All responses much appreciated.
They are about identical (this is the standard DR nautical chart, non the ML version);

The whole DR discussion around the 6D two after information technology launched was completely overblown past armchair specsheet “experts”. In reality the DR of 6D ii is perfectly adequate for almost any situation – unless, of grade, you stuff up the original exposure badly.
In general I would advise that there is very little between the IQ of the ii bodies, so the selection would come down to other factors like – 1 card or 2, flippy screen, ameliorate connectivity, size/weight, weather sealing, robustness, DPAF, features (both have their pros & cons), budget, used vs new etc.

I’d be surprised if that’southward the example only I thought I’d ask. The lenses and legendary Canon colours are beyond debate, just the choice of camera is a flake more complicated for me. I would rather use 6D Marking Two purely due to that flip out screen and touch to shoot option, but if the quality of the images is worse then the 5D Mark Iii then I’ll probably get that instead. This question relates only to dynamic range and paradigm quality, as opposed to camera use/ features. All responses much appreciated.
According to the DPR Exposure Latitude comparison tool, they are very similar pushed half-dozen stops at ISO 100 (actual ISO 6400 exposure), except that the 5D3 has a singled-out fine vertical banding noise that the 6D2 doesn’t accept, only the 6D2 has wide horizontal banding that is more than visible in a heavily downsized image, as yous become in the tool for the full prototype for the camera selected in the upper correct quadrant. The 6D2 does have 1/3 finish more highlight headroom, which counts technically as part of the RAW DR, merely taking advantage of it during underexposure is non likely in practice, unless you only lean towards +1/3 stop more than exposure, but intentional under-exposure is rarely that precise.
Let’s exist frank; every Canon FF before the 5D4 and also including the 6D2 and RP take poor base-ISO shadow recovery by current standards. Even the 24 and 32 MP APS-C cameras have much better base of operations-ISO shadow recovery. The 6D (original) has the best shadows out of all the FF sensors of the last decade with off-sensor ADCs, but is still junior to modern APS-C for pushing deep base-ISO shadows.
The 5D3 and 6D2 are both “ETTR” cameras that give best results when you don’t have to rely on weak shadow exposures.
