Let me make this simple by working though it...
The 5D2/5D3 are almost identical in terms of measurable DR.
Measured by what method?
This is all conjecture anyway, combining unrelated statements by unrelated people.
At the end of the day, the detail will likely be phenomenal, and the shadows probably don't be as liftable as Sony, but if the noise floor statement is to be believed, they'll be more liftable than the previous 5Ds. Personally, shadow lifting isn't something I do wish any regularity, regardless of whether I'm using Canon gear or Sony gear. I purchased the A7R primarily for resolution in the studio, where I control light entirely. I also shoot landscape, but never find the need the push shadows significantly unless I screw up the exposure.
