I'd rather keep a $6k set with HDR10-only which actually meets the HDR10 standard than a lower quality DV set which will continue to present a picture further and further from the master as the DV masters push the envelope. At which point, to see what was originally mastered, you'll have to upgrade anyway.
Put another way; this Sony set reaches the limits of HDR10's mastering recommendations, so it'll show any and all HDR10 material to the best of its capabilities. Some "other" DV sets don't even reach HDR10 standards, so not only will it not display HDR10 at its best, but it'll never display a DV title at its best, rather it'll show a reasonably good looking tone-mapped variant.
Thus, if you want the best of DV, and you buy one of those other sets, then you'll be upgrading anyway. But, if you want the best of HDR10, then this Sony will be good enough because it meets HDR10 requirements.
That said, I suppose it'd be a no-brainer if Sony supported DV. Maybe next year....
