CMS is nice, but the RS40's natural mode is very nearly at Rec 709, so I'm not sure how much difference a CMS would yeild, and I've always had good luck with pixel alignment with my JVCs.
As for the e-shift, I read conficting opinions on it. By and large how do you owners like it?
I struggled with a similar choice X35 verses X55. However whereas for me I already have a Lumagen (for CMS), Darbee and an Isco lens it made it more a question of whether it was worth paying extra for the Eshift. Personally I found it seemed quite similar in effect to the Darbee (which I already had) and pixel density is already really good in my set up with the A lens. Like the Darbee it seems possible to overdo the Eshift settings and cause side effects on the two demo units I've seen myself. It is more adjustable than the Darbee and can even be combined with the Darbee as well, so it's an improvement in some ways so long as the settings aren't overcooked.
However, the bigger point being that in the UK the price difference was about £2,000 which looking at exchange rates this morning is approx $3,200 not just
That difference really falls into the 'no brainer' area to me and now I see why you guys seem to question us X35/RS46 owners wanting to save a little money especially if you don't already have a Lumagen and a a Darbee. I can't understand how come the difference is so small for you guys compared to double the price for us. For me the X55/RS48 would have to have much higher contrast as well to justify the extra cost, but that model is of course the X75, which is another £2,000 ($3,200) more again.
