Not wishing to be provocative since virtually everyone seems to think more DR is better, but can we have too much Dynamic Range? Can a sensor with a greater DR produce end up producing results that look 'flat' without post processing?

Of course... especially if we feel obligated to use all the available DR just because it's there.

But it is there. As standard - unless we choose to turn it down. But how many ever do?

Turning up the camera's in-camera contrast setting probably isn't so uncommon. That can effectively move some of the available DR to the ends.
