There's also a dynamic range benefit at higher ISOs. At base ISO, however, there's a dynamic range cost compared to the A7R.

This is devastating news to me. I am truly saddened to see this confirmed and thankful at the same time for the work you have put into it. I love everything about the A7S, but for practical issues on the job (for me at least) the A7 and A7R seem like the reigning champions, as I value low ISO DR above much else.

if you "value low ISO DR above much else", the a7s is obviously not a camera you should be concerned with. doesn't the S in a7S indicate that? no reason to be devastated. that's like claiming to be devastated that the a7r is not medium format, lol.

The "S" never needed to indicate that. Sony flat out said it in their marketing of the A7S. Your analogy is not very well thought out.

Still, I like the camera and it works great. DR at low ISO is on par with the others if we start at ISO400 which I consider low still. Base ISO still belongs to the A7 and A7R.
