Bill, The Z1 on a nice day with an F-Stop of 5.6 or so with ND1 on put beside our old 390 there is no doubt the Z1 smokes the 390 in all around picture quality and capabilities to readily adjust the picture in many ways without pulling out the 390's 200 page manual. The Z1 at a 2.8 plus 9 gain is ok but the 390 in the same light would be around a 4.0 or better with 0 gain, in other words the Z1 awsome with good light and the DSR awsome with low light. I sure hope they make some changes in the next few years in the low light capabilities and the zoom range without a screwon vingyetting doubler. But all in all the Z1's will see way more daylight than our boxed up 390's I feel its that much better and although we master in SD we have a huge library of HDV now and it is better than SD, just keeping up with the changes. Thanks
