Wouldn't that depend on the local contrast? If the subject is as flat as the light, I would think you can get close to SBR=0 (which wouldn't be an interesting subject, but anyhow)?

On the (side)subject of weather, I can say from personal experience that after five months of continuous rain, you really appreciate a glimpse of the sun. Those of you in the sunnier climes have no idea of what sunlight is!
