I don't know of anyone other than Trevor that doesn't recognize the similarity of how Fuji's S#Pro and EXR sensor's can substantially increase the captured DR, by either one or two stop's worth.

Just to clarify my point:

The extra highlight headroom available using EXR Hardware is essentially no better, IQ-wise, than the same result produced by EXR Software.

It (the amount of highlight headroom achievable) is no greater via EXR Hardware than can be achieved by EXR Software.

I imagine that if DPR had done the same DR tests for the X20 that they did for the X10 the result would be the same.

That's why they don't bother putting EXR Hardware solutions into real cameras.  The disadvanatges far outweigh any presumed benefits.
