Other than being steelbook packaging, I wonder how this release will differ from the 30th anniversary UHD from 2019.

122 minutes? For some reason I misremembered this as a 3 hour epic. I guess I'd better buy it.

The press release for this says Dolby Vision, and I think the previous UHD was HDR10. Seems to me that Sony has made this change on reissues of other films as well.
Yes, the previous 4K isn't in Dolby Vision, but HDR. I'm not going to spend another $20+ just to have it in Dolby Vision and Steelbook packaging.

I don't have a 4K setup yet. Is there a significant difference between HDR10 and Dolby Vision?

HDR10 is the base level of HDR on video. Dolby Vision is (primarily) an added layer of metadata on top of it that tells compatible televisions how to tone-map the image to match the capabilities the particular screen is actually able to display. If the TV does not have Dolby Vision, it will fall back to the HDR10 base and do the tone-mapping itself. Some are better at this than others.

Note that home theater projectors are not compatible with Dolby Vision at all and can only do HDR10. Projectors can't hit the peak brightness levels that Dolby Vision requires in its specs.

Thank you I knew about the DV limitations on projectors (which is what I use, so I've been researching the potential candidates for when I replace my 1080p setup), I didn't realize HDR10 was the starting point for DV.
