    The article states New OLPF.

    Really surprised with the underexposure test. Something doesn't seem right.

    I think some of these are old tests... or all of them.

    14 is the new 16, I guess... This is very similar (the same) to my initial results with the new OLPF back in Feb.

    I'd be very curious to see how MX would do with a DEB-equivalent helping to clean up the (more useable) blacks... Maybe get an extra stop of highlight protection with similar noise/useable shadows?

    It's right. Dragon with new olpf is not as great in lowlight as the old olpf. That's why a lot of us have been asking for an olpf that splits the difference.

    I had a Dragon shoot recently for a spot involving some green screen and practical rain and vfx, shot 250 inside and outside. The problems occur when not shooting for the sensors strong points. I have to say it is so weird now switching to raw view and seeing 800. That takes some getting used to. But at 250 Dragon is super clean, even inside.

    I don't know about you guys, but the blacks seemed clipped in the dragon under exposure test. Like the shadow control was being manipulated.

    I am sure this test has been done properly and there is no manipulation at all.
