With these technologies, you no longer need tons of light to benefit from HDR like you did 6-12 months prior. So I think that explains why "lumens aren't even that important when it comes to HDR" much better than assuming its all some sort of biased hypocrisy.
The question I keep asking myself is, with such a bright image would I get eye fatigue. What I mean is even on my system which for a bulb projector and 1.3 gain screen with a DCR lens I can throw a bright picture. There are times especially during bright parts that I am going "this is almost too much" and I can tell I am squinting. Just curious if people with these notice that or are you just dialing it back to where I would be anyway with Nit value?? I notice this especially with HDR and the Panni tone mapping.
