Correct! JPEG shooters use DR enhancement extensively...

I ask because I'm consistently disappointed with results using the DR enhancement feature. Grainy, flat and impossible to enhance in post would seem to be the order of the day. I can fully appreciate why that is, given what the camera does to boost DR, but I do wonder if it's worth it if you'll be PP'ing anyway.

Now I occasionally have had decent results at DR400, but looking at them they are largely shots of subjects that didn't really justify DR400 in the first place. These days, if the sun is in frame, I might set the camera to DR200 manually, otherwise I'll just leave the camera set to DR100 and adjust the image in post.

This isn't a x-trans vs bayer debate either - this seems to be identical between the X-Pro1 and X100 (and frankly the same was true of my old Sony NEX-7).

PS I understand the utility for those who shoot jpeg (as I used to).

X10 has an advantage using DR400 verses X-E1 DR400 for JPEG shooters.

Tom S. did a quick comparison test see here:
