Regarding the electronic color calibration required to avoid aberrations, this is better done after you put some hours on the projector, or right at installation? Is there an "ideal" number of hours? Does the calibration need to be redone at a certain number of hours? (I hope I am not opening another "zoom vs lens" type of discussion here!). Thanks!

The color calibration we are referring to is a one time deal at initial setup. Bulb hours etc. do not factor in.

I own a RS57 and use the zooming method to switch between 16:9 and 2.35:1 content. I was planning to buy an anamorphic lens but decided to forget about it since the zoomed 2.35:1 picture looks amazing to me, and the lens memory function is quick and precise. Now, I have lots of spare money to update my front speakers...

BTW, I have never tried an anamorphic lens with my current setup, so I dont know how much better it might look...

I get where you're coming from Stef2 having fairly recently upgraded my front speakers to MK Sound 150 series. I was just very lucky to pick up a decent Isco II lens secondhand to try out and sell on if I found it didn't add anything...It's about 4 years on now, but I decided to keep it, but I'm not so sure I would if I'd had access to an Eshift projector, but what I would say is don't try one if you don't want to spend the money; just incase. smile.gif

Zooming: Been there, done that, bought the lens...
