hmmm, [taps fingers]

Is there any intention to test this camera? It has, according to dpreview, outrageous dynamic range when set for extended DR, making it the potential successor to s5pro. However, before I were to purchase it I would really like to see what happens to that dynamic range at higher ISOs. Usually it dramatically falls off with other makes, but not with the s5pro until after ISO800.
The reason that this important is that there are some situations that other techniques (ie. bracketing) are not usable, ie. backlit portraits, or for portaiture where skin specular highlights are in need of being controlled. Currently only Film and the s5pro are practical solutions to this problem. That higher ISO s5pro performance is necessary in many backlit portraiture, indoor natural lighting situations.
