You've made a very nice example using an aerial video platform. I notice, with some dismay, your video is much sharper (more detail) than anything I've seen so far from the X5. The video experts will probably say it's "over sharpened" but I like it. Everywhere I look, new X5 owners are praising the "softer, cinematic" look of the X5. In my 40 years experience of buying professional cameras and lenses the word softer would not normally be a selling point.
