    Totally agree...because he comes at it from the perspective of what you can do with each and the final results, not the serious tech side, he's a "non tech head" kind of shooter.

    I hope when he does the F3, FS100, and AF shoot out he compares brightness and noise levels at max gain!

    I'm sure that will be one of the main points he focuses on

    Basically the test I'm waiting for before deciding which camera to buy.

    Yes, I need to see this test too. I was about to pull the trigger and get an AF100...but honestly the footage I'm seeing is giving me cause for concern. It's the AF100's handling of highlights that is scaring me right now. Meanwhile, the limited footage I'm seeing from the FS100 testers just looks better.

    1st F3
    2nd FS100, milky skies, trees oversaturated.
    3rd AF100, shadow detail lost.

    Hm...my guess:

    1st FS100 - delicate handling of colour and shadow
    2nd AF101 - a bit smeary to me, which is what I believe I've been seeing from AF100 footage
    3rd F3 - nice picture; I couldn't really decide whether I liked 1st or 3rd better, but know I didn't like the 2nd.

    EDIT: Those were my guesses, and they were ALL wrong. The real answers turn out to be--

    1st AF101
    2nd F3
    3rd FS100

    I did feel that the 3rd and 1st were nearly the same. The second looked bad, so it's surprising it's the F3. In fact, a number of people on Vimeo commented that the 2nd one looks bad. I even thought it was a 5DmkII thrown in there to throw us off. But nope, it's the most expensive camera of the bunch. Maybe just too hard to tell much from a shot of that distance?

    I'm very sure the last shot is the AF100 given the shadow detail loss. But, none of them are exposed exactly the same (very close though). Also, the detail lost under the bridge would've likely been aided by choosing different gamma settings. The shadows on the third seem to be crushed a little bit by the camera and don't look as natural. Choosing something like Cine-D wouldn't have made such a contrasty image so either he's got a contrasty setting chosen on the AF100, or it's not the AF100 at all...
