I'm very interested in seeing how much this is going to cost in the UK.
Up until recently $4k in the US usually translated to £3.5k+ in the UK, and these were the sorts of prices I was expecting here.
But some of the pricing for the Viewsonic and ACER LED-Laser hybrid projectors appear to be suggesting a price ratio of closer to 2:1 US:UK.
This would make the Panny, if it is $4k in the US, somewhere closer to £2k in the UK, which would be a totally different kettle of piranha.
£4k is w-a-a-a-a-y out of my price range. But If I'm going to be spending £1,600 or £1,700 anyway then £2k looks very do-able indeed - particularly with the extra brightness and lens shift, etc.
