DR very disappointing for all at high ISO

Above ISO 12.800 the dynamic range is very disappointing, how strange.
I only shoot at ISO 12.800 or above, even in sunshine.
If the DR curve had been in the opposite direction (large DR for high ISO)
I would be more happy.

(irony)

People are writing so much about high ISO performance here at dpreview.com
but less about dynamic range at high ISO. I guess people have different needs,
and maybe not better dynamic range at higher ISO speeds?

For me large dynamic range at low ISO is most important, not ISO million++
So I welcome the some better dynamic range performance in these
latest sensors.
