How much lack of DR/ noise is acceptable to you? Example from Canon USA
1

I was checking Canon USA website and saw this:

That pic was taken using 5D2. If you look closely you will see that there is high noise on the legs of the photographer and the chin of the child, most likely from the lack of DR of 5DII. But the image looks acceptable to me. If this was taken by you, would you use this image? Do we measurebate too much in these forums instead of viewing the whole images at a glance? I can understand why someone will want the best his/ her money can buy, but when we already have some gears, may be we should try our best to use that gear. What do you think?
