A better path to DR for landscapes

If you're shooting landscapes, you can capture several shots at varying exposures, and merge them using any of several excellent High Dynamic Range applications. HDR will yield files of much greater DR than you could get with any single exposure using any camera.

Thus, for landscape work, I don't see differences in DR as being very important.
