K100D Dynamic Range compared to others

I am not taking credit for finding this link (saw it on DPreview) but thought it needed to be shared:
K100D beat every other camera in Dynamic range, except the Fujifilm S3 Pro, when shooting in RAW.

thanks for this website. Very interesting to see the same sensor having various performance with different brands.

If k100d already outperforms for some many brands at ISO 800, I am very confident on k10d. After all, I have been shooting ISO200 max 400 already. I personally never trust 800 in my ds.

Txs for the link Redhawk.
For me it plainly prooves that the Sony 6 MPix CCD is underestimated and still has some great potential. It's rather funny to see the K100D perform better than the Nikon D50 and D70, which uses the same sensor...
From my D I know there's a wide dynamic range (wider than the EOS Rebel series anyway) if you shoot RAW.

Which brings me to the second conclusion: always shoot RAW!

I wonder what the K10D will perform like...
