RE: need clarification about G12 vs. G1X dynamic range

Could someone please verify or correct my understanding of this issue.

According to testing, the G1X has LESS (10.8) dynamic range than the G12 (11.2).

Thus, despite its high-end stature, the G1X has a more restricted range concerning shadows and highlights when on standard setting against G12. Given the importance of dynamic range in pics, it seems to me that Canon neglected to make dynamic range a priority in this camera compared with G12, despite the fact that color depth and ISO are - obviously - superior???
