Re: S-log and outputs

Charles, not a bad idea, although I'd have to see it in action before I'd settle for the image quality of an ENG/EFP lens. I never realized how poor those $25K lenses really looked until I switched over to PL lenses. One of the best things about moving to a S-35 sensor is not having to use those lenses anymore. But with that said, maybe Alister's 2/3" adapter is what we'd want to use on my hypothetical PDW-F800PL for run & gun.

Re: S-log and outputs

There's those cine-style zooms like the Zeiss Digizoom that floated around when the F900 was king--but not quite as ideal for run and gun. Still a greatly improved zoom ratio over the handholdable PL zooms (and faster, to boot).

We did manage to work the Alura 18-80 into a handholdable setup with the F3, but it's a little strange configuring a camera when the center of gravity is fore of the lens port. However I expect to see more and more of this as the cameras shrink as the optics stay the same size.
