Tikitom, Ranger and Hififun
I have seen 3 HW30´s and on all 3 I could adjust focus, so it pixels was cleary seen, but the 95ES ( which I have now ) lens is cleary better - sharper and more uniform clearer/sharper over the hole picture/ panel area.
I still dont get / see what Kris talk about with the lenses
I compared the X70 and the 95ES and in sharpness, and the X70 isnt´ sharper IMO. ( just for comparison with a other lens/projector in the same price level )
what do you mean by : " yet still optically challenged 95". ? Have you heard one
owner say the optic was bad ? ( and yes, if I did find it bad, I would say it
- or even one who complain over the picture is soft or defocussed ? ( the only one
I have heard about ,was Kris - maybe he got a bad one !? - but if they all
was "bad" / "not so good" wouldnt you / everybody els have heard about it ?? or do we 95ES owners keep it as a secret
, to trick other people into buying a crap projector
And have you seen one your self, and found it "bad" ?
. Whats wrong with the "All range crisp focus lens"
Go see the 1000ES ( and yes, I have seen that too ) - it has, I quote : " Sony has developed the 4K All-Range Crisp Focus (ARC-F) lens
specifically for the VPL-VW1000ES projector to produce optimised 4K images. By incorporating this super high-resolution lens, high precision and high quality picture is realised in every corner of the image".
This lens is very
good, so actually Sony can make quality lenses ( but I agree that Zeiss can too - but their better optics cost too
Anyway, the HW 50 sound very promising
( especially on one area, where the 95ES isnt in the top - it is not a light canon calibrated
, so if you want to go big screen or very bright in 3D, this HW50 sounds like a good contender or buy a HP screen
