Apologies for noobie question, do all the Canon APS-C sensors display the same dynamic range? What I am really trying to find out is, from just the DR perspective, would Canon 70D be similar to say, a T4i or T3i?

The real issue is not the dynamic range as DxO reports it, it is the patterned nature of the noise in some (most) Canon implementations.  The 70D seems to be the best camera they have made to date in this regard -- it has more noise than the Nikon/Sony implementations but it is not nearly as patterned as some other Canon implementations.

I am one who actually likes the noise on many shots. The noise on the 650D is fine and smeared rather than splashed and rough.

And so you know it is not a case of reverse sour grapes, i also own a 6D which has stellar noise performance.
