Any thoughts on buying used on eBay v. New?

As a disclosure I have no affiliation to this eBay listing.

More than 30% off MSRP for a demo unit? Sounds like a good deal to me...

Two generations of this lens

If I remember correctly Panamorph changed the AR coating they used for this lens and offered an exchange program for existing owners. I did the upgrade because the newer coating bumps the light transmission (I recall 15%) and my JVC LCOS is way under powered for the task at hand. Filling a 132" screen.

Otherwise I would be happy with either generation of the lens. I don't think the price changed with the AR coating change. You just get a lens with more "punch".
