Re: Why exactly do large sensors have more dynamic range

Why would the A7r IV have a lower per unit area FWC than the GFX? I thought those two sensors were very, very closely related... I certainly see Jim's point about per-sensor FWC, but the per-area FWC shouldn't differ by 10% as far as I can see...

It also doesn't surprise me that the Z7 is unusually high per unit area - it has the low ISO settings - would the sensor modifications that enable ISO 64 also increase FWC?
