Forget about DR and just go get a used 5D3.

nice, the OP specifically wants better DR and the best you can come up with is for them to ignore what they want because you say so
But just because the OP wants better DR does not necessarily mean that better DR is the path that he/she should take. Dynamic range is greatly overvalued by many photographers - they think that better DR will help them solve some of their problems, and it often doesn't. Many times here on POTN, thread starters are misguided in what they want, and posts that seek to guide them in another direction altogether are sometimes the best advice of all.
Farmer's post isn't stupid, but it is shallow. Honestly, even though I agree with his advice, I don't see how his post is helpful, because he takes no time to explain why he advises against increased dynamic range. Helpful posts explain the "why" behind the advice, and seek to educate others........I do not see that level of helpfulness in Farmer's post.
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
