Finally got my 85" over the weekend. Playing with PQ setting and watching some DV context noticed that DV gets really bright on those object around/background with lights. Almost too much distracting from the actual/focus part of the video. Example Altered Carbon that has a lot of lights.

I did have a question / concern on the clouding on menu or login type screens. Reading in this thread from Dusty5 and others... it seems its somewhat normal and even Sony says so. When you look around the web though, people post pictures similar to mine and its either a "thats normal" or a "thats bad, return it" reaction. Figured this forum has more knowledgeable people and actually own the TV so figured I'd post here.
Anyways, I've attached images from my iphone 8. All taken in a dark room with factory settings. The pics DEFINITELY look worse than in real life and it isn't as bad in person. I'm thinking because it boosts the exposure to see the clouding which then blows it out.
This clouding from the corners does NOT happen when viewing regular content or even black screens... ONLY happens on no-input screens, Netflix login screens and similar. I ran gray and black YouTube test videos and its near perfect black uniformity with none of this clouding. I attached the second screen to show how the lower right clouding is basically gone compared to the Netflix screen. The random streaks are from reflections so never mind those.
If this is somewhat normal on these sets and LCD's, then I'm fine with it as it doesn't affect normal viewing at all. Just wanted to hear from the owners/experts. Otherwise this TV rocks!
Thats normal. Make sure you have auto local dimming set to high or medium. Below is mine off vs medium.
