The skill of the colorist is much more important than the actual grading system IMHO.

There is really not any difference in quality/resolution, etc. between the two both will assemble and grade DPX scans and have similar color correction tools. Lustre seems to be more popular with shops that have a all Autodesk (Discreet) environment and Baselight is used in many shops from small to big.

And yes the colorist is what you should be basing your decision on, not the machine.

If you wanna quick turn around on the final finishing of the Film, they Baselight could aid a lot, and again it depends on the facility with which you are working. Toolsets would have much greater confidence and flexibility with Baselight.
