Not an expert on PJ... but I read that a native 16x9 will be ok to project 2.35:1 movies

You can start with the PJ (I read is the recommendation for us newbies ), then use the wall to determine the screen size you like better

Are you planning to buy or build the screen???

I have a pulldown graywolf 106"

I have wanted to build a 2.35:1 screen but not that keen on an external lens.

I read that if you don't want/can get an external lens... you can use the zoom of the PJ

Like I said, I'm doing some research for the future, currently I'm using a 67" DLP TV, but I hope some day to get a PJ and screen

Well, there's the new avielo Optix Superwide 235 with native 2.40/1
They are very secretive about the price, but I read a guestimate of something like 20K...

Press release:
http://www.avielo.com/pdf/optix%20Su...0cedia2010.pdf

Fingers crossed for a more affordable attempt. I would pay 5K, since a commercial anamorphic lens will cost 2-3K, without a projector like the Pana 4000.

Slowly building a 9.2.4 HT with 3 DIYSG Titan LX LCR, 2 LLT subs (done) and much, much more...

That is ridiculously priced but it is good because hopefully that feature will start showing up in affordable units.

I remember when 720p projectors were crazy expensive.

Thanks for sharing the link!

Prismasonic H 850 M

Is this any good to use with the Panasonic AE4000?

http://www.highendpassion.nl/epages/...H%20850%20M%22

It's affordable +/- 1,000
Better buys out there?

Not being able to read German or whatever that language is..all I can say is that you can use any A lens on a projector, providing the lens elements are large enough not to cause vignetting..

It's Dutch... a millenium or so old spinn-off from German.

I was advized today that the BenQ W6000 would be better for my desired hughe screen. More lumens. It's also cheaper in EU vs the Panasonic, unlike the USA situation.

Re: 2.40/1 screen. Am I on track?

Ah, the Prismasonic is from Finland:

http://www.prismasonic.com/english/index.shtml

Prices start at €990, shipping to EU is €40
This is EU, hence no VAT and duties added within EU (were already in)
EDIT: PRICES ARE WITHOUT VAT: 23% for EU

And at 2500 lumens, it is a light cannon! I just wish they had not changed the chassis from the W5000.
