No worries.

Yes the 40ES was not as accurate prior to the Lumagen. I found that there wasn't sufficient adjustment range in the one preset that allowed two point balance adjustments. At least...

And yeah...I don't have a nine foot tripod to measure near the lens and I won't be acquiring one. My id3 is reasonably accurate (reporting...

The higher contrast reading in my 'historical record'. Is due to use of Brite Cinema. I've always been clear about that. If you look closely the black levels are very close in my calibrated result....

When I care to take the time I calibrate with and without the lens. I've found there is very little difference other than ANSI contrast dropping slightly. Technically I care more about accuracy when...

Keep in mind I'm not saying the guy should be abused. But I'm tired of all the 'we're just doing it for the children!' attitude around here. I've yet to see a hero in this saga.

Fair enough, but at this point we're a few models deep and it should be mentioned when the subsequent models are reviewed. When I last checked there was a headline about the JVC gamma droop being...
