DR is not a hype it is a fact and it needs skills to use it , no one will have less DR or a lens with lower resolution
Hello, can I have a 300/2.8 MK3 IS with lower resolution- please
The DR itself is not hype; I never said that it was (read my post again). However, much of the discussion surrounding it definitely involves a lot of hype and tends to raise a lot of unnecessary FUD. What is a fact is this: With a few cameras, you will get two additional stops of noise performance in the deep shadows when you dial the gain in the camera to ISO=100. If noise is really your concern, you will always do better with a multi-shot approach, in cases where you can do so.
DR should be looked at as a feature, just like a 100% VF, In-body IS, Tilt screen, 61 point AF or any other of those things that you may be considering. You need to figure out where it benefits you and where it does not and then determine how much it is worth in any decision you may be making. It doesn't affect the general IQ of the camera (this is where the hype generally creeps in), just a small set of corner cases that may or may not be important to any given photographer.
