I'd still rather a 65 system update, something you can purchase, and something which doesn't require just arriraw even if you had it downsampled to 4K ProRes in Camera.

Honestly, and I'm sure it's just me, but I'm underwhelmed. When you have the Alexa 65, in reality; what does this bring? Higher frame rates? I'd rather the option of higher frame rates on an Alexa 65, to be totally honest. I feel like, in times past, vistavision just isn't the format we're really looking for when we have the option of basically the same sensor in the 65 Alexa with higher resolution to boot and the resources to make the new VV lenses could've probably opened up a new world of optics for 65 acquisition. I mean I get it, sure, it's for the "4K" requirement, but I feel like we were already beyond that with the 65.

People (not me!) can buy an Alexa LF.
You can't buy an Alexa 65!

You have many more glass options with the LF than you have with the 65. Many high-end sets of lenses can be used with the LF. Don't know if it's true or not, but I was told by an ARRI representative that Roger Deakins preferred the regular Alexa XT for "Blade Runner 65" because his usual choice of glass (Master Primes) didn't have a 65mm equivalent.

And why couldn't they have made a 65 you could buy, even if it's not me that can buy it. That's my point. it doesn't exist, presumably, because they made this instead. Of which the master primes will also not cover fully (though I'm told the 35 and up should)
