I just recently demo'd the 695ES and came away very impressed. The older model, 675, I demo'd in the same room/conditions didn't look quite like that.
I've owned JVCs and like them a lot and my last JVC was the X990/RS640. The X990 offered up a great lens sample too to go along with outstanding blacks. However, after a while, with HDR tone-mapping, even when using the UB820, I came away a bit disappointed. It's spec'd contrast is at 160,000:1 native but for HDR, who would want to use it that way. I'm not clamping down the iris to -15 for HDR images. So, I wasn't that worried about going native 4K panels like the new JVCs whose native contrast ratio for the NX7 and NX9 is spec'd a little lower than the equivalents of the last series. Anyway, in that anticipation thread, someone made a comment about how good the 695's motion was, so I thought I'd see for myself.
In the end, I preferred the images of the 695ES over the X990's.

What I was trying to explain is that when I left the 695 demo, I kept thinking about how good the motion was. Also, I thought about how there was a certain steadiness and clarity to the whole of the image; it's hard to describe...there was nothing raw about the processing that's for sure.
