    An odd thing about the 18-80 is that it was supposed to be a great budget buy at $5,225 and now, five years later, it's $4,600. Somehow, it must not not have proved to be that popular.

    There are no engineering problems with MFT. There are tradeoffs. The problem was and still is the cartel that limits the newest technology to certain class cameras and certain brands within it.

    "Mad Men" was first shot on film, then on Alexa.

    F55 was famously used to get that vintage look on Vinyl.

    FWIW, F5 didn't have 4K upon its release. Except, it did, if one went deep into the menu. Otherwise, it was a paid upgrade. Sony got a flack for it.

    I'd look at a used Red. No overwhelming preference, just that it might have that Digital Bolex flavor at 4K. Not sure if it lasts 5-10 years but, IMO, it's better to get higher end gear that has a...
