How Canon Can Move On Sony-6D MKIII with 4K and 14 EV DR

OK, I have not and will not purchase a Canon 6D MKII despite waiting many years for it to come out.  Reasons have been gone over by so many including me so no need to reiterate here.

Canon can come out with a 6D MKIII to fix this problem to where I would purchase one and it could create a lot of positive PR for Canon.  Here is all Canon has to add and modify from the current 6D MKII:

1.  Create a 24 MP sensor that can manage 14 EV DR.  The Canon 5D MKIV according to DXOmark can manage 13.6 EV DR at ISO 100 so using similar circuitry in the 6D MKIII sensor with larger pixels should get a few tenths higher EV at ISO 100 than the 5D MKIV;

2.  Add 4k FF;

3.  -here is the kicker-use the same fully articulating touchscreeb LCD.  Sony will likely not be coming out with this anytime soon so this along with points 1 and 2 would be major for Canon.

I am going to purchase the Sony a7III soon but will keep Canon lenses to use on the Sony.  Will keep my Canon lenses till this fall.  If no Canon 6D MKIII then (or equivalent mirrorless) than will be selling my Canon lenses and going fully to Sony.

Long time Canon user who wants to stay a Canon user but the decision is Canon's.
