Re: A real life example of DR, tone and color gradation

But I really have to struggle to see the subtle performance differences between these two machines. It is hard to present a good test to highlight the the differences (to hold all of the necessary variable constant) and you've done a good job at it. But the fact that we have to really struggle hard to find the IQ difference says a lot to me.

Very interesting observation. To my eye the differences are not at all subtle but stand out clearly. I wonder if this could be a result of monitor differences or simply familiarity with the differences. I've noticed this when someone points out differences in exposure. I had a hard time seeing it until I calibrated my monitor, but I think it could also be a matter of looking for it now. Much like those "magic eye" pictures, it's hard for me to not see the 3D effect now when I once never could.
