But I could still get the shot with the Canon with a little work. But the DRoners...the DRoners seem incapable of actually showing where it matters at all.
And I can bet $1000 that any of your photos could have been taken with a phone camera or a P&S.
You certainly don't need a DSRL - and yet, you bought one.
And the reason you bought a DSLR is the very same reason why having more DR is better.
Yes, you can take award winning photos with inferior gear.
But that doesn't mean that we shouldn't want better gear.
We always want to have the best (we can afford) - even if we don't really need it.
Same for you with your Canon DSLR - and same for us, who want more DR.
So, your lame argument is just that - very, very lame.
Common now, show me any of your DSLR pictures that I cannot take with my iPhone.
If not, just stfu.
