How "fast" is the camera, when using a moderately fast lens? Say, an f/1.8 lens? Rather than an EI number, could you possibly "compare" its speed to another "known" camera, preferably, a broadcast 2/3" camera? Or better yet, estimate the broadcast standard F/XX @ 2,000 lux sensitivity specification for the camera? Exciting product--looks great! Thanks.

It's going to be f10 at 2000lux

bump.

I think I saw Ari or someone mentioning that it was a different chip going into the cameras back then? So can someone confirm that this is accurate with the current cameras? And can someone with more of a clue say what that is in ISO film-speed numbers (b/c I'm pretty sure I'm doing it wrong)? :)

Obrigado,

Nevermind-- answering my own questions with a bit of looking around:
