    This is also what I was told... Phil, do you know if it comes with the VV PL mount when you upgrade?

    It is a new camera, therefore has the same 2 year standard warranty.

I know it has not been an option for a while now, but at the time, it cost $10K more than a woven CF Weapon did. Thanks man!

    Glad you asked. If you WEAPON woven or forged CF, those panels will NOT be replaced as part of update to DSMC2. You get to keep those badges of honor on your camera….

    This is blah news. The math makes perfect sense actually. I think this has a lot to do with a price correction from all the “Easter eggs” and “golden tickets” we’ve accumulated over the years. All the low ball epic w’s, the weapons, monstro prices... the second hand market has been in a bit of turmoil due to the drastic price two people with the exact same camera could have paid.

    Not mad or confused at all by this move. It irons out all those dirty confusing details from the past and paves way for an easier to understand future.

    Truly feel for the few full price guys out there though... But you all are clearly getting taken care of. So all in all back to business as usual.

    thanks. And just to be clear, the internals in my camera are no different than what everyone else would be upgrading to in DSMC2?

    When you upgrade to monstro you can choose to upgrade either an EF or a PL mount to the VV version as part of the package.

    That’s all great and good. I finally bought into RED in a big way, mainly because they seemed like they genuinely did their best for their customers. 6 payments into my camera and you cut the price by $25,000. I mean WTF.
