And what is the DR of Sony sensors?

from memory from dpreview review of k10 is around 7.2 and d200 is about 7.4 (but I could have totally stuffed those numbers

According to Imaging Resource, if I'm reading this correctly (http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/K10D/K10DIMATEST.HTM -- about 2/3 of the way down the page), the RAW from a k10d is in the same neighborhood -- 11.7 f-stops DR.

But I must be comparing apples to oranges.

That test did show the K10D to have a very good DR. Better than DPReview gave it. It certainly has better DR than my *istD.

Like mentioned in the imaging recource site, I have found a little blocking of tones in my deep shadows. I do a lot of low key stuff so it does show up, but only on the monitor, not in the print.

for me , not much better than slides , guess less than 7 .
the reds are better than canon
shadows are bad compared to negatives

bottom line, add a little fill light where ever you can,
it's a great studio camera.
try to keep the histogram to the right,
good for midtones, good for shadows , ~ev+1/3- 1/2
bring it back in RAW , nice skin gradient, nicer shadows

just my 2 pixels, Rob
