The DR modes work by underexposing the shot to protect the highlights, then lifting up the shadows to make up for the underexposure. This practice greatly increases noise. I get more DR and less noise by shooting DR100 and ETTR. You can then get better results than the camera by controlling the highlights and shadows during PP.

Of course you do. But that is cheating. It is unfair to apply the laws of physics to obtan superior results.

None of us should think for ourselves . Just set everything possible parameter to auto and take  thousands of photos every time you pick up the camera.
