I had the same concerns about it also but to be honest i disagree with Philip Bloom and i must say i am pretty happy also with the AF-100. Indeed it handles highlights very well. However i came across people with no experience in digital cinema video cameras that bought the AF-100 for weddings and don't even use a grey card or do a white balance and have no clue how to expose and that results to blown out highlights reminding that any camera can give blown out highlights. Still, i wouldn't recommend the AF-100 to anyone inexperienced in digital cinematography. It's a manual camera and theres almost nothing automatic about it. But all i am saying is that you need to have some good cinematography skills to make the best out of your AF-100. If you ask me If i am happy with the AF-100 i must say i am pleased 200% with it.
