Hmm - that's not what I understood. everything I've read indicates digital sensors have about the same dynamic range as slide film. In any case B&W film processed properly has a much wider dynamic range than digital sensors or color film. I'd like to see a digital sensor with at least as much range as B&W and preferably more. There are always difficult lighting situations that need more range to capture.
