Your examples do not really test the DR limits of the 70D. You need really deep shadows for that. The read noise is additive, not a multiplicative noise.

Try night shots.

Totally agree.  I don't know what op was trying to show with a bunch of ISO100 samples.

Often Canon gets bashed for poor DR at low iso when lifting shadows several EV. These samples are low iso with lifted shadows and demonstrate that actual results are what matter. Surprisingly, technical tests are not God's word. Not always, at least.

There are folks who see DXO ratings and claim "Canons are 2+ stops behind Sony sensors in DR, therefore their DR must be poor". I think these claims are unfair. Just that.
