EXIF shows these to be single images, not HDR, right? If so, I really like the dynamic range it demonstrates with the amount of detail on the scene out the windows and door balanced with the indoor views. I'm impressed.

I've had my 6D about a week now and haven't really had a chance to give it a workout but I'm looking forward to seeing what it can do. I'm moving up from a 5D (original) so it's a quantum leap forward for me.

Right no HDR

I'm glad you're happy with your 6D (it looks like there's a lot to like about it) but I'm not aware of anyone reporting a significant difference in dynamic range between the 6D and 5DII. In fact, the dpreview review of the 6D shows less DR than the 5DII or III - see

As for your photos, they're very nice, but its pretty clear you were lighting the interiors with added light/ flash. So I'm not sure how they're examples of the camera's dynamic range abilities.

According to DXO, 6D DR is marginally better than 5DII, 12.1 vs 11.9. It definitely not worse from my own experience. And 6D's shadows are much cleaner.
