    MF Dynamic Range ?

    I've heard a lot of talk about the increased dynamic range with the 9 micron MF backs, something like 12 stops. The 12MP FF Nikon sensor is very close to this with 8.45 microns so why does the Nikon not have as much DR as the MF backs, is something else going on?

    The pixel spacing is not the same as pixel size. Usually people refer to the spacing, so the fill factor is not taken into account. Noise can also reduce DR.
