    Hey Erik! Quick questions since you do a lot of testing with the various canon EOS C line of cameras. Have you done a comparison with with WDR vs CLOG in both the C100 & C100MII? I have had C100s for most of my work over the past few years and recently picked up the C100MII and the MII is what the C100 originally should have been. I shoot in WDR almost exclusively but recently just started exploring the CLOG option. I thought you might be a good resource for this so any insight you might have please pass along. Your reviews over the past few years have been awesome and I really appreciate the time you put into them!

    Thanks much, Damien
