Nope. Greater dynamic range itself doesn´t have anything to do with image output. What makes those images flat is compressing DR from each sides (dark/bright) of light amount into viewable form. This is all that nasty pushing of shadows and stuff. If there is shadow, It should in many cases stay there. So one should use not only DR more wisely instead of pushing everything what can be pushed. That´s all. If I go for image that needs great DR to be compressed, I don´t care what range the camera has. I pick enaugh images by exposure bracketing that it has "total" dynamic range, better than any current cam can produce. Of course this is not possible for faster mooving objects.
