My question is this...I have read about problems with JVC projectors and Panamorph lenses, specifically the older UH380 and problems with light scatter. After seeing these comments about the lightpath and change in design from the RS1/RS2 to the offset of the RS10/RS20 generation, I'm wondering if the light scatter was only a problem due to the older JVC design? The reason I ask is that I feel that even the older UH380 lens would be an upgrade from my Prismasonic H1400R. I have avoided the older Panamorph due to comments about it not playing well with JVC's. Anyone have knowledge or firsthand experience with these?
I haven't tried the UH380 as I did read the reports of the light scatter problem even with the newer JVC models in the 2.35 forum and that why I went with the UH480. Since the models coming out this year still have the same body design I can't see the problem eliminated with them.
