Hmmm, interesting, now wondering what possible change or upgrade could be offered. If it’s enabling the iris, unless it’s manual I don’t see any advantage. Possibly upgrade to the ARC lens I wonder? Again from seeing both , I personally wouldn’t pay too much for an ARC upgrade given the size screens these are filling. An extra thousand lumens, now that would be something to to get excited about for sure But that is not going to happen. My guess it’s going to be improvements to the software for improved HDR and maybe more aggressive dynamic Dimming, that would be helpful or a functioning manual iris. You would expect the VW 995 to get the same treatment obviously, time will tell if this is speculation or real.
