    We can guess all we want, but at the end of the day, we don't know all the factors that result in the final price we see.

    I could be wrong, but I've just never bought into the theory that RedMags...

    RedMags are one of the best things about the whole RED ecosystem.

    I don't see how any alternative of the same quality could cost less.

    Just to be clear, the Alexa LF is clipping highlights at +6 (including the ones in her left eye), right?

    They also say, "The brightest exposure in which the top lights in her face have not yet clipped, we call the ETTR exposure (see explanation in Review 2016)."

    So, they're exposing for the highlight...

    Correct, the 5D with a Canon EOS mount can't use L39 (or Leica M) rangefinder lenses because those rangefinder lenses are meant to mount closer to the camera sensor than the EOS mount allows.

    Good point Jens, looks like I got that wrong in regards to the Leica L39 lenses being adaptable to Canon EOS.

    I thought it looked great. I liked the muted colours and milky blacks, with a high level of detail/resolution. The distortion from the wide angle lens looked interesting too. Nice work overall imo.

    Ideally you'd get a grey-card, white-card, colour-chart, and skin-tone model and shoot them all in the same frame/scene under controlled lighting.
