OP quotes above:

"The dynamic range depends on your acceptance of the noise: if you are accepting 28% at ISO 1600, then the DR of the D3X is 7 EV (28% is very low)."

If we assume the above statement true, I still cannot see much difference between bodies in (for example) ir -test since the visible noise seems to be roughly equivalent?

He also asked some D3x raws with different curves layout to prove further, but i'm afraid argumenting with second hand information ad infinitum is more popular here than practical photography.

Anyway I'm going back shooting. And yes my cameras can deliver quite a lot of what I need (unlike the yesterdays 1.5/1.6 crop cameras like D200 and 30D could honestly do) -> That is the significant difference for my applications.
