Maybe there was a less suspicious reason for its absence? Double-booked, emergency maintenance or something? What was the reason that they gave Mr. Boyle?

I don't think Panavision feels any need to put the Genesis out there for comparison testing, at least not yet. It gets plenty of rental work now as is.

But eventually you know someone is going to do it.

I don't think there is any mystery left these days as to how the Genesis performs in general. Yes, a side-by-side test against the Arri-D20 would be informative though to compare noise, contrast, etc.
