dxo mark x bill's DR measurements: same difference re D3s

Both indicate and increase of 1+EV at base ISO in DR from D3s to D4. That's the real upgrade point for the D4, if people realize what is happening here.

It seems that Nikon stayed at lower pixel count so that reading could be done in a more careful way, not like Sony's system, but much closer now than it used to be with D3 and D3s. And with visible results in shadows performance.

Very nicely done.
