    Yeah, that's important for some, but I almost never shoot at the lowest compression, which is why I'm interested in what this will mean in terms of future upgrades. Happy to sit this one out, but...

    I can't decide whether to get my Weapon Mg in line for this or not. It's quite a lot of money for IPP2 in camera. What other advantages do we get? Faster data rates? New body or just new front plate...

    Would there be enough space to make an RF to Red mount adapter? RF on one side, flat plate with threads for DSMC lens mount screws on the other. Pass through for electronics.

    Hi Brendan, -1 for me for now. Hoping for some more info on future upgrade paths, but just based on the spec bump vs price for Mg -> DSMC2 unified, I can't justify the expense.

    I'm holding off buying anything until we have a bit more info (data rates, dynamic range, pre-record, release date) and some sample footage. Not that I expect to be disappointed - I think the Komodo...

    I've never used one but it does look pretty good. Out of my price range though. I'm thinking speed booster plus canon L / Sigma EF glass for now.

    Interesting thanks. I seldom zoom while rolling, but it would be really convenient to be able to change focal length and not have to double-check focus.

    I'm also a bit unsure of the benefits to us Mg owners, so I'm struggling to justify the upgrade cost for IPP2 in camera (and slightly higher data rates?). Not sure if it is better to save the money...

    Is it not just a lens that maintains focus when you zoom?

    This has probably been talked about before, and maybe there's a reason it is more difficult than it seems, but would it not be possible to...

    Thanks Aaron, that's helpful. I think Red uses diagonals to calculate crop factors here: https://www.red.com/crop-factor

    Thanks Jeff, I thought crop factor was always calculated from the diagonal ratio. So, when calculating the crop factor when using a 0.71x speedbooster, do we use 1.33x or 1.42x as the crop factor for...

    I thought the same myself before I noticed that Phil's formatcompare uses horizontal not diagonal measurements for crop factor.

    Surely if the speedbooster increases the lp/mm that will result in an improvement in IQ for sensor sizes smaller than what the lens was designed for? I agree the lens itself won't resolve more line...

    Sure. Just seems like quite a compromise to shoot with a 4x crop factor to get 120fps. I'm sure it will work in some situations.

    Jarred has confirmed the top screen displays video as well. Great for medium format style portraiture and maybe even useful for framing in some situations where weight is critical?

    Do we know the resolution of the top screen? Looks pretty good from Jarreds photo. I'm wondering if a loupe with mirror/prism can be made so we can use it as a viewfinder.
