Yeah I couldn't possible see how they could miss it. I think the 5D3 sensor is too old.
I think that it is pretty safe to say that DPAF will be in the 5D Mark IV. Almost everything else about the sensor will remain the same %-)
Whenever you want a clean image, you wouln't ever use the ISO expansion. My experience is that usable images can only be obtained 1-stop of ISO below the maximum native ISO range.
Something else to consider that didn't necessary exist a few years ago is now we have a market flooded with tons of awesome used camera equipment for dirt cheap. I mean, the 40D was $1600 new and now you can get bodies for $250-$300. It's a powerhouse of a camera and still takes fantastic images. It's getting harder and harder for the companies to "impress" the people with REAL usable features. There will always be the useless features that look good on paper but I'm not too concerned with those. Not to mention the fact that DSLR's are still expensive and not everyone has a grand laying around to just buy new equipment each time a new body comes out.
And today, not even a decade later, with the 6D you get an excellent ultra high ISO FF body at the same price of the former 40D. Canon gear improved quite a bit in the past years.
regarding the link above
"The Canon EOS 6D may deliver lower resolution images (20mp vs 22mp), however this gives the 6D the benefit of lower noise at higher ISOs. "
NO, it means that Canon has a better way to deal with color noise and banding in 6D .
It is surprising that so many test pages do not understand the difference and think that less resolution has a positive effect on high iso
As an example, the 6D with higher resolution than 1DX has better signal/ noise ratio at 51000iso than the 1dx
