Okay doke. Here are two shots demonstrating decent dynamic range. Both were shot with the 5D Mark II. Both were shot in the morning. The landscape shot was taken at 5am, and the monument shot was taken at 8am. At 12pm, both shots would be near impossible without HDR and/or a 3-stop ND grad because the shots would be approximately 3 stops short of what the 5D Mark III could handle. The Nikon has 2 stops (or more) of usable latitude, which would make the shots easier to handle (if shot later, when the latitude of the scene extends beyond what the camera can handle).
