Sorry, but this makes no sense to me. Why would they preset the camera to some lower dynamic range setting? The camera manufacturers are very competitive and are trying to squeeze every single bit of performance they can during engineering design. There must be a downside to this setting.

I can quickly think of three huge downsides: Increased noise at high ISO settings. No option for selective sharpening in post. Reduced options for output sharpening.

Ken has some good stuff on his web site and a whole lot of not so good stuff on his web site. I'm not sure what your experience has been but I tend to take what he says with a grain of salt.
