I don't know where they found those numbers but the body is 6 lbs. It will usually end up slightly lighter than an Alexa mini once you add rods and battery plates to it.
Weighs nearly exactly as much as an ursa mini pro...
Is raw really that important? 99% of the shoots I'm on, shoot ProRes and the ones that do shoot raw, do it because they're using red. The original Alexa didn't shoot raw and it did pretty alright for itself.
There's a video on YouTube that compares Amira @ internal UHD upscaling with Red Dragon 6k and the difference is negligible at best. Even if the difference was bigger, most consumers don't sit Cloe enough to their screens to fully appreciate 1080p, let alone UHD!
The Super Baltars are interesting lenses indeed. They almost look anamorphic in the out-of-focus areas. Unfortunately it's kind of hit and miss when it comes to mechanical quality. I've had a P+S Technik rehoused set that couldn't focus past 3m, and then a flawless macro-converted Eastern Enterprises set. Really varies.
There's a SALT (http://www.reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?73380-SALT-II-results-(Part-1-2-3-4-Bokeh-Breathing-amp-Flare-and-Part-5-Impressions)) test that compares various stills lenses with some Angenieux zooms and this is what they say:
The Optimos were extraordinary, other than some odd distortion you really see the performance and what you're getting for your $20K+. They out performed every other lens prime or zoom and had zero visible CA or veiling flare.
The Canon's performed quite well and overall had the lowest distortion of all the group, but also the most CA.
With lenses like Master Primes part of the price is how low the tolerances are. A lot of glass has to be remade to get within those margins.
Probably less than if it was made with cgi...
