HELP!!! RS3000/NX9 vs RS2000/NX7 vs RS1000/NX5?
I started a new thread, but I realize most people are just following this thread, as I am. I've tried to shorten this version of the post.
Ordered a JVC DLA-NX7 a week ago, still have 1-2 wk to wait. Now I'm wondering, should I have spent more for the RS3000/NX9 OR saved money and gotten the RS1000/NX5? I'm looking for the best bang for the buck.
1. RS3000/NX9 owners: value is subjective, but what made you buy the RS3000/DLA-NX9 for thousands more than the RS2000/DLA-NX7? I want the best blacks and HDR possible, but is that worth $6-8K more? (I have a 156" scope screen so I need a lot of light).
2. RS2000/NX7 owners: I read that the NX7 and NX5 are equal in brightness AND both have DI. Is the NX7's higher CR noticeable? Or should I get the NX5 and spend the savings on an anamorphic lens (obviously not the $8K Panamorph DCR)?
Thanks in advance.
