With the x750 you could use manual -8 and reduce the light hitting the panels, then the auto iris reduces light through the lens?
Curious have you seen 1% adl measurements with the auto iris? I can't seem to find any(except for the nx9), maybe they're buried in the forums here somewhere. 1% native is usually around 10k. Maybe 50% boost so around 15k at 1%?
The RS500 is really where JVC took off IMO. From the previous model it added another 500-600 lumens and the bulbs started lasting considerably longer. They added the lumens without losing any contrast or black floor. It was a monumental increase in picture quality. If you can find an RS500 for $1200-1500 I'd snatch that sucker up. You won't be sorry.
