Lifting 4ev from pretty dark shadows is not deep enough and the test is a random, not valid test? OK. I'm happy with my random abilities, then.

This is not how you use "real world" DR or test the real world DR performance. In order to do that you have to:

1. Start with a very high contrast scene.

2. Set proper exposure so there is no blown highlight

3. Then lift the shadow and compare what you can get from each

In other words you have to be able to take care of both high end and low end with one exposure. That is the reason why we need high DR.
