i was watching a lot of stuff this weekend. Man of Steel 2D, End of Watch (from Digital HD Shaw cable), and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows on blu ray.
PQ wise, this thing is excellent. Fine detail is far FAR above what the VW95 was capable of. Sharp but natural.
Anyway, my observation is about the auto iris. I never noticed pumping with the VW95 ever, but i did notice it a bit this weekend. It varies by content. During Man of Steel, i saw nothing objectionable. Same with end of watch. Blacks are CRAZY good with lamp on low and iris on Full with brightness at 100. But i noticed the iris pumping a lot during Harry Potter. I think maybe its because the movie is so so dark.
So i'd say that with the iris to limited, the black level is the same as the VW95, which is excellent, because the overall picture is brighter at the same time. With the iris to Full, the pumping may be more visible with some content (lots of dark and bright scenes mixed) but the black level is much better than the VW95.
What are you guys using for your iris setting?
