    Would anyone know if the current version of the Sony FE PZ 28-135 f4 G Lens has had any tweaks or changes since it was introduced a few years ago?

    This debayer artefact tipically happens also on a R3D (and on all CMOS) when some highcontrast/colors are present in the picture and the debayer isn't set to full.

    Had a quick play with my friend's FX9 last night. Seems there's little to no penalty to shooting in 4kS35. Noise at high ISO's show little to no chroma subsampling.
    Noise is muted/monochromatic as far as I could tell, a major improvement over FS7.

    White balance in S.Cinetone seemed to have a mild bias toward green.
    Need more time to test and shoot with the camera.

    Did you see those artefacts in Slog-3/S-Gamut3.Cine ?

    Sony PXW-FX9 - In-Depth Review

    You might have to lower the resolution to 1080 to keep the video from continually buffering.

    This stuff from the FX9 looks absolutely stunning. Highlight rolloff looks beautiful. Very cinematic stuff. Venice color profile looks great. It really does look like Sony has fixed their weird color issues of the past. There is still a slight biased towards green, but it's not unpleasant. It actually looks quite nice.

    I think this is some of the most "cinematic" stuff I've seen with the camera to date. The highlight rolloff is just lovely...

    I’m all for the FX9, the FS7 was always well talked about and an FS700 and FS5 were in the running to film my first feature and we even considered the A7S too for the full frame low light factor. This camera seems to combine all of of those aspects into one camera and with the 4K down sampling it’s almost like a simplified F65 setup, which still looks great itself. My only problem is that there isn’t an option for getting the full 6K out of it and the RAW output is still up in the air at this point as I worry about potential pitfalls and weirdness in the RAW footage like the FS7 notoriously had. Otherwise it’s a great option and all of these great footage samples are proving that more and more.

    As for the image artifacts in high speed situations, that’s something I’ve always expected as even in the SD and HD days, more defects in the image became apparent when filmed at higher frames per second, even in “The Hobbit” movies at 48fps a lot of unnecessary details and lighting effects became more noticeable whereas 24p hid a lot of it. It’s a shame that we’re still having to deal with technical limitations on that point but someone will figure it out at some point I’m sure.

    Shot on the FX9. The green/blue Sony colors are visible in the skin tones a bit, but that might also be the grade. It's a very nice looking spot, none-the-less. I'm digging the Venice profile a lot...

    I only understood "pathetic". And "masterpiece".

    What green/blue colors?
