OK I give up! - "Why isn't Canon working on DSLRs with higher dynamic range"
Am I missing something? I have yet to have problems with the Dynamic range capabilities of any Canon DSLR that I have owned.
I have used several Nikons (D800/800E + others) that are alleged to have increased Dynamic Range but, frankly, I was not too impressed wit the results, lenses perhaps? I read that they have higher DR at low ISO - perhaps they do - but I was not impressed by the overall IQ.
I am not saying that my cameras are perfect, but what I am saying is that they have yet to let me down in the DR department.
Am I just exposing properly?
There are lots of possibilities - maybe you don't take photos of situations/places with lots of high contrast, or you expose correctly for the elements in the scene that matter to you and you don't worry about or even notice or care about the rest, or when you have dark shadows you don't want to lighten them as much as others do, if at all, or when you do the resulting noise doesn't bother you, etc., etc.
(I too wasn't wild about the images I took with an 800e when I rented one last year out of curiosity; I prefer what I can get from my Sony A7r - though like you I don't know why, exactly - the camera, the lenses I used, not having the camera long enough to figure out how best to use it, or some mix of these.)
