But...but...the DR, man...you're completely ignoring the DReaded DR issue!!!
I struggle with DR all the time at high ISO. I've never had a situation where Canon's base ISO DR was insufficient AND a couple more stops would have made it sufficient. I've had one situation where 20 more stops would have made it sufficient, but I don't think even the lenses can support that much DR.
On a sunny day just aim your camera out the back door at the woods and you will instantly find a case where the current DR is not enough but Exmor would be enough. And from there you realize that tons of shots dealing with forests will be the same scenario.
While I never visit the woods, I doubt that since I have taken pictures of trees inside a hotel with a glass ceiling, and was able to correctlyexpose the directly sunlit ceiling windows and the underside of trees that were far from the windows and under bridges.
