Re: Or, on the other hand...
In reply to Nigel Wilkins, Feb 13, 2013

How many posts have we seen over the years that go something like, "I'm never buying X brand ever again, and selling all my gear to switch to Y brand because they have 12.7 stops of DR and X brand only has 11.1 stops!"  Is it really worth all the anxiety, not to mention the financial hit, to achieve something that 99% of all observers, including the photographer himself, will probably never notice in the final product?  Would any of McCurry's images be markedly improved by having 12 stops of DR instead of less than 4?  If there was a difference, how many of us would even know it?
