If this is true, it would be outstanding. Taking pictures in less than ideal circumstances, but still getting good output. It would be a great help.

Bigger dynamic range will be a help in RAW shooting as well, you can easily take a shot where the highlights are to badly blown to be recovered in PP, also from RAW shots.
