Sorry if i offended anyone, BUT

1/ The OP did single out Canon or [did he put the same in other forums]

2/ When you are specializing and using [run of the mill equipment] you shouldn't be complaining

3/ This was a bait i put out for a stir, [No thinking photographer will ever need 10 stops of DR]

i should have used the words [more than 10 stops] but i didn't. you know what i mean,

coming from the pre digital era ,where slides had about 4 stops max of range, 2 stop either side max, one could say we are being spoilt but i wont, because i like the latest IQ ,but i know there is a difference between a FORD and ROLLS ROYCE, now when you look at the link on the OP, there would hardly be a camera under $12000 and that RED stuff isn't petty cash either ,not run of the mill stuff where these big companies make their billions.

Velvia has around 5 stops...Provia about 6, and astia around 7.  Color neg materials are around the 11 to 13 or so stops.  B&w materials can extend to approx 18 stops.  I think you have a bit of reading to do and some experience to gain.
