Re: (even more) vindication on DR

This is what I've been saying all along! Every single test that actually measures DR shows the Merrill sensor with way more DR than people give it credit for. I hadn't ever seen a D800 image that made me think the camera had more DR than the Merrill cameras and here we see someone confirm it...

I'm a sigma fan and user since many years, i have (had) DP1, DP2, SD14, SD15, SD1, DP1m, and DP2m.

I also think, that the DR of the Merrills is decent, when exposed correctly. I think its comparable to Canon 5D MK2. 
But what i've seen from D800, D600 or Sony RX-1 is just another step forward when it comes to DR.
You can download RAW samples from the nikon D600 here: 
(There are some very hight contrast scenes, try to push shadows....there is a lot of color information in the dark areas, with very low color noise, very impressive)
