Anthony, I believe you don't understand this subject well at all.  It
appears you are confusing film density range with scene density range, and
they are two entirely different things.  And, your claiming you don't need
to understand the Zone system (and therefore how compensation development
works), clearly indicates your lack of understanding this issue, and it's
importance to this discussion.  Nor do you appear to want to learn.

You say that, but it's just not true.
