One more MP and perhaps slightly better noise with no improvement in DR for three

You basically can't improve noise and have no improvement in DR.

You also have (I'm sure) no quantitative date on DR or SNR as neither DPR or DxO has published that sort of data yet and they are basically the only semi-reliable sources for it.

I expect improved DR and noise in the mk III sensor though Canon's design philosophy is different than Sony's or perhaps just not as skilled yet.

There has been no significant shift in regular CMOS sensors since the D7000 for Sony sourced imagers.

There would be no reason really to update a sensor to give 1 more MP so Canon did something else to it and that most likely something elses are SNR and readout speed related.
