From our experience filming in Cartagena, the dynamic range is about 1 1/2 more compared to the f55, especially because of the improvement in the signal-to-noise ratio, but I would highlight two important improvements, the first is that the way in which the detail disappears in the high lights is much softer than previous cameras and second that skin tone is now more natural, with more texture and with a great gradations of color with a lot of subtlety.

I would agree with this. In particular there is something very pleasing about the way the extreme highlights look that is nicer than the F55. I don’t really see that big an improvement in over exposure range at the base ISO, but the top end of the top stop just looks more natural for some reason. The main DR improvement is in the shadows where the low noise allows you to really dig a long way into the darkest parts of the image.  Or rate the camera at 800 or 1000 ISO to really extend the highlights.
