i don´t get it wrong, but it was not a mistake. i needed the logo corrected you can imagine i have others with people corrected expose with a beatiful white sky (no recovery is possible). big ev diference.

In such cases I use a flash, but it is not a big deal. If the D610 makes you a happy photographer then by all means. The strength of the 5D3 was never super DR at base ISO.

the noise in people faces is acceptable. try to do that with a canon sensor...probably in a few months you can and even better with the new 7d MKII

I am betting it will still be worse than the Sony sensor in base ISO by a lot. The idea that the big sensor improvements have anything to do with the base ISO DR is a mistake IMO. I expect a half a stop of improvement at most, and the big changes to be an improved version of the 70D AF.
