BTW DXO does not take in account the banding. The 5dmk2 has more banding than the 6D. Banding is very annoying for the eyes, much more than random noise, wich is more like argentic grain.

Yes, but that has been said here several times already. And the OP never said anything about banding. He confuses DR with highlight headroom (for a given exposure).

The proper tests would be to expose for the highlights in RAW (the highlights you want to keep), lift the shadows and process both images to get comparable results, and compare the shadow noise, banding included. He did nothing of that.

Google "highlight headroom vs. dr".
