It depends on what you mean, if you mean the best DR then above ISO 1000 they are basically all the same.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but why do you consider DR at high ISOs?

Just because they can be measured, does not mean that they reflect high ISO noise. They do not; they only correlate weakly, because manufacturers tend to keep highlight headroom in a general range in most cameras.

PDR is not a useful reference for high ISO noise. It has nothing directly to do with high ISO noise. The DPReview comparison tool is more useful, because it shows what noise actually looks like, with the same exposure.

But either you get different sized images which are hard to compare, all but one downscaled (that may make the noise in three look better or worse depending on how they do it) or all 4 downscaled a lot (ditto).

BTW I gave Studio scene examples here (in this thread):

(Note I cheated and used COMP but threw in a lower-res sensor so all the ones they might be interested in got scaled to 16MP, as I thought that might be interesting.)

Roger Clark has a good article on the 6D, but not more recent cameras to compare it to, plus not an easy read for many people.

P.S. my "Summary" was 5D4 followed by 6D, or possibly an A7III/A7rIII, would you differ?
