This is the first published measurement for dynamic range that I've seen for the DP2M. I comparison, the D800 DR is measured at ISO 100: 11.38 and ISO 800: 8.85.

Pretty impressive.

How does Shutterbug measure dynamic range? Does it use the same method as Bill Claff (per the link you provided)?

Sorry I waited so long to get back to you.  I don't know how Shutterbug measures dynamic range.

In the same issue of Shutterbug we have two other reviews:

Nikon Coolpix P7700 has a maximum dynamic range of 11.4 f/stops.

Sony Alpha 37 SLT has a maximum dynamic range of 10.6 f/stops.
