Re: X10 versus Nikon D200

Is the D200 the 10MP CCD or the 12MP cmos, I forget.

Your account makes sense for me if about a standard 12MP 2/3 CCD but surely the game is different if the HDR effect of EXR mode is taken into account?

DXO rate the DR of the full size X10 files at 11.5 stops.  I'm certainly not qualified to disagree with their methods.  I do know that DR is something that has definitely improved across the sensor generations so you would expect a newer smaller sensor to close the gap somewhat with older big sensors.
