    I see dxomark shows maximum dynamic range at ISO 100 ... can't seem to set ISO below 200 (v1.6 firmware). Am I missing something? I do love me some dynamic range.

    What DxO calls "ISO" isn't ISO in the International Standards Organization sense. DxO's ISO is the saturation of the sensor with photons. ISO's ISO only applies to JPEGs. The ISO200 in your camera refers to the International Standards definition. If you want to saturate your sensor in the DxO manner, set your camera to ISO200 and ETTR.
