Long-time stalker, first time poster. I'll be quick. I'm planning on pulling the trigger on a panamorph UH480 lens to be paired with my jvc rs2. My throw is 16.5 feet throwing a 83/84 inch 16:9 pic. zoom is non-existent. Clearly I do this to maximize contrast and to diminish pincushion if and when I get the lens. My questions to you wonderful folks:
1. I'm told the UH480 has a sweet spot between 12 and 17 feet. Is this true? Can this be done without the long-throw adapter, i.e. by default?
2. I'm also told that anamorphic lenes have a retro-reflective issue with jvc projectors. I'm guessing this relates mostly or rather entirely to the last generation or projectors (i.e. the rs10 up to the rs35). Can one of you confirm this? I doubt my rs2 will fall into this problematic issue seeing as the lens is not recessed.
3. And finally I plan on having the projector shelf mounted, so i'm wondering how difficult would it be to slide the UH480 in and out of the way when needed. I'm guessing maybe some markers in place will help.
Thanks so much.
