Shot some DR tests today. Nothing fancy or artsy, emphasis was on contrast handling
(not on smooth camera moves - had that lightweight travel tripod with the crappy head again - but walking several miles with a 40lbs Vinten?)

So I went out to the Park at mean noon sun.
That, combined with a lot of trees is usual a receipt for DR disaster.
Deep shadows with puddles of super bright sunlight.

Point is, the material It looks not really spectacular, but just natural - more what your eyes see (not exactly but you get the idea).
So yeah, mission accomplished BMC - on all other cameras under 18000 bucks most of the lights would be completely blown out and the shadows just dark blotches. This is RED HDR and Alexa territory IMHO.
