I guess I'm thinking that you mean the likely hood of having an over/underexposure situation is decreased, if the range of the camera covers all values in a scene.

OK, I guess I need to get one to play with it . I was thinking that 14.5 stops has 4.5 more stops than needed per se. If your exposure is accurate within +/- 2.25 stops, the range should have you covered?

Initially I was thinking in terms of an incident meter exposure where zone V would be exposed for zone V and all the other zones would fall within the latitude. The comments on exposure error got me to thinking that extra range would be or exposure forgiving.
