Canon won't achieve similar dynamic range until they update their ancient fabrication process.
But see, while some photographers are into landscape photography with cameras that include greater DR than the rest, other are using whichever cameras they have been using for landscapes for several years already.
The main difference in regards to the market share is which cameras are most used by the people taking photos, pro and non: most people are not just into landscapes, but into everything (studio, landscapes, taking pictures of their families, pets, and so on). While Sony may have a sensor that is capable of greater DR than Canon, the later is producing a sensor that has greater capabilities for high ISO/low noise photography. Besides that, there are other ways for people to use older cameras and still attain as much DR as needed. What did photographers do before the new sensor technology by Sony arrived to the market? Do you think that they just tossed their cameras in the trash because they lacked sufficient DR?
A few years ago, my Nikon-user friends were boasting about the high-ISO features offered by Nikon. Then Canon offered cameras with sensors that tackled high ISO, and that's about the time my Nikon friends began talking about higher DR from their Nikon cameras
I wonder what is next?
