JVC RS3000/DLA-NX9 worth the extra $$$ over RS2000/NX7?
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?
OK, so I have 3 separate questions:
1. If you bought/ordered the RS3000/NX9: I know the value proposition is totally subjective, but what are the truly standout reasons you all ordered the RS3000/DLA-NX9 for thousands more than the RS2000/DLA-NX7? I do want the best blacks and the best HDR experience possible, but is that worth $6-8K more? (I have a 156" scope screen so I need a lot of light).
2. If you bought/ordered the RS2000/NX7: is the NX7 really worth the $2K over the NX5? I read that both have equal brightness and DI (I thought the NX5 didn't have a DI, but someone corrected me in the official thread). Is the higher native CR noticeable? Or should I get the NX5 and spend the savings on an anamorphic lens (obviously not the $8K Panamorph DCR)?
3. Is it worth the slightly extra money for the RS*000 version over the DLA-NX* version?
Thanks in advance!
