“What are the feelings on highlight rolloff? Especially in comparison to the current “titleholder” ARRI Alexa / Amira sensor?”

Cameras shouldn’t be judged based on what stock gamma curve the manufacturer includes by default in the drop down menu.  Essentially all digital sensors hard clip without any roll off give or take a slight bit of highlight recovery possible with different debayer algorithms.  Essentially every professional camera these days includes user customizable LUTs in camera.  If you don’t like the roll off of a camera, use a different one.   Color of course is still important because that’s partly determined by the bayer color filters and other deep inaccessible color science that the user can’t touch.  But tone mapping is thoroughly within the control of the user and always a LUT whether that’s built in or user uploaded.  If you like Arri’s rolloff, load up an Arri Log gamma curve for your preferred camera.
