Checking out a used FS100
on Sep 10, 2012 at 5:28:55 pm

Need to test out a used FS100 (arriving in a couple of days) before the trial period is over. I'll rent a new one and compare the two. Any suggestions about what to check for? Any thoughts about what might be a common vulnerability? My own thoughts are below:

1) resolution/backfocus
2) autofocus accuracy and speed (with kit lens from test camera - waiting for the power zoom version for myself)
3) 4:2:2 out image quality and gradability
4) custom gamma profiles
5) low-light performance
6) Autoexposure accuracy
7) In-camera manual metering/exposure setting with third-party lenses (adapting it to a set of leica-R lenses)
8) dead pixels
9) uniform sensitivity across sensor
10)uniform contrast across viewfinder
11) condition of handle attachment screw
12) codec gradability

The method of testing in most cases seems like a straightforward comparison of image, but any tips anyone feels necessary in that regard would be appreciated. (I suppose there's no guarantee that a rented FS100 is in optimal condition, come to think of it...)
