Yesterday I took some JPEG photos outdoor, it was very sunny, so some of them had some very dark shadows, even though they were JPEG I we able to remove the shadows in Lightroom 4.1 and the results was AMAZING !!, in some case I had to apply 100% but the image degradation was minimal; and the amount of detail I was able to recover was much more that what I expected for a JPEG file. I think this is because of the very good DR and the 36MP of the D800E.

I am second to this. Since high DR is the same for D800 and D800E, in my expeience, let me post couple samples to support your statement. As everyone can see, there is no any highlights clipping or washing out on high conrast image, as well as great shadow details at the time of sunset. THX. Dimitri (Images for testing DR only, BTW.)

Crop from the image above - 10 min with LR, and you may uncover much more details from the area of 40 times underexposed! Dimitri.
