Yes but it's not about the sensor or the A/D. It's about compatibility with log luts. SLog3 is 16 stops. If the camera sensor is only 12-14, it's not going to fill all the bits and still be SLog3. If you have a 10 stop camera with SLog3 it will still de-lut the same with Resolve as a 14 stop camera, the step size of the shades will be the same, just not as many because there is less dynamic range.
