I live in Japan. So today I went down to the camera stores and grabbed a brochure for the upcoming D810.

What caught my eyes is a description of how they acheived ISO64. Based on my limited Japanese, it seems to say that the underlying pixel bin (or diode) can store 2/3 more light intensity information. If you look at the pictures below, those yellow dots illustrates cmulative intensity information (its not a physical structure). Most importantly, it says its a newly designed chip at the top.

Assuming that what is said is true, logically does that mean the dynamic range will increase further for other ISO settings (since each pixel bin can now store more intensity information)???

Not necessarily, since it seems speed to fill well would have been kept, thus the need to reduce sensitivity to attain higher FWC.

No one seems to be talking about this in the media...could that be? A further improvement in dynamic range in an already outstanding sensor?

It has been commented here by Horshack, for example.
