What software do you plan to use to post process the RAW files?  That is your answer.

If you have it enable you can with DPRSplit extract the second raw file and increase DR with around 1 Ev.

Re: 5D Mark IV

Personally I would not use it. Right now, too old to change I guess.  It makes a big file even bigger and it doesn't always improve the shot from what I have heard. No first hand experience my self.  I will bet all software companies will support it at some time.  Adobe has confirmed they're adding the 5D Mark IV’s dual pixel raw technology into Lightroom. This includes Adobe Camera Raw. Canon may not disclose how it works but it is to Canon's benefit to have PS and LR support it.

I would not be surprised if they don't help Adobe out a bit.  All pros use LR and PS, and they are the ones that buy this type of camera. Its just a fact.
