Phil got 12 stops of DR from D3's RAW file

Phil said in his D3 review: "we measured the result to have exactly 12 stops of dynamic range...... It's not quite Fujifilm S5 Pro level, but with careful processing it's not far off."

However, Simon said this in his S5 Pro Review: "The most we could achieve using Adobe Camera RAW was a total dynamic range of 12.1 EV"

12.0 vs 12.1, D3 is still not quite S5 Pro level???

Anyhow, I'm very glad to see 12 stops from D3's RAW file. My next camera will definitely be a D3.

Feel free to comment, especially the folks who have both the D3 and the S5.
