FYI, Nikon DR is only superior at lower iso.
Once above 800 Canons actually tend to a slight advantage in DR.
That's true for the Canon full frame models. The 7D does have the odd nonlinear dynamic range curve that the full frame models have, but it falls away less gradually than the full frame models do. ISO 100 dynamic range is nearly the same between the 7D and the 6D, but the gap widens past ISO 400. The Nikon D7100 and the Canon 6D intersect at ISO 800. Before then, the D7100 has the DR advantage.
Unless someone shoots ISO 400 or lower for birds in flight, there is no advantage.
With respect to Canon's full frame lineup, that's true.
But with respect to Canon's crop lineup, the Nikons hold a 1 stop lead throughout the ISO range, and that lead widens below ISO 800.
Still would be nice to have more though!
Never can have too much dynamic range as long as you have enough bit depth in your files to handle it.
