DR works the same as ISO.  If you take D800 with its 14 stop DR, you are not going to push it all the way to 14 because it will introduce too much noise and color casts.  You will push maybe up to 8-9  stops.  With Canon on the other hand you will probably not go above 5-6 stops.  If we had a sensor with 20 stops DR, you would maybe push it up to 14-16 stops max.
