Higher dynamic range is certainly valued by many landscape photographers and higher dynamic range is provided by models of comparable cost from Nikon and Sony.

My understanding is that if you find yourself using HDR, that will much less often with the Sony sensor.

I use Dual-ISO from MagicLantern, to get better dynamic range. It costs a significant amount of resolution to match the DR of the Sony sensor. So with my 6d, I have about 14 EV DR at about 10 - 12 mpx, rather than 36 mpx at 14 EV DR.

I stress that I have always been a Canon user and have never used either of the other two makes.

Same here.
