Question to you guys who have been in the gear forums for years Re: DR
1

I saw a rumour about the new mirrorless 5ds and the usual annoying DR discussions came up.

Serious question....  When did DR become such a big deal?  Is it just me or is the improved sensors and the ability to massage files starting to make a lot of photography all look the same.

Personally speaking, the photographers I admire are the ones that embrace contrast and make it work artistically. Furthermore I invest a lot of time in education in regards to lighting, posing etc. I never see world class photographers ever try and fix exposure in post. There is an assumption that it should be shot correctly from the get go.

Again, personally speaking I am annoyed if my exposures are out and I have to correct them. My personal goal is to shoot an entire event or wedding or whatever and nail exposure the whole day. I will get there one day.

Now I know that Real estate guys and some landscape guys will take all the DR they can get... I understand that.

Am I missing something or is it simply people just trolling and taking shots at Canon for being behind the Sony sensors for the sake of trolling.
