And most people will never actually reach the 14EV of DR or the extra color depth these cameras allow for. It's just beyond most (including mine) people's abilities.

Every time you take a shot during a sunny day, you make use of the 14 EV dynamic range. In fact, even then the camera has to decide if it wants to preserve the highlights or shadows - because 14EV is far from enough to capture a scene in direct sunlight without clipping any channels.

On a sunny day even my ixus can produce a histogram unclipped at both ends and the D70 comfortably in RAW.

I think wide dynamic range is a huge benefit but you have to work to use and only rarely was the D70 out of range
