Not a noticeable benefit...perhaps very minor measurable change in brightness...the 8000 is designed to focus/keystone/zoom within the range of the V&H shifts....If you can get V&H dead center...why not...But raising it up from that point a few feet to avoid heads is an insignificant change practically speaking. Personally, I don't think I'll be ceiling mounting as I had planned...just to keep lumens as high as possible (for a larger screen) and keeping keystone adjustments to a minimum.

Thanks, I figured it was worth asking.
Eco in our room is plenty bright so it can stay where it is.
Sounds like I lucked out, I didn't need any digital shifting or keystone correction just a quick knob adjustment and we were good to go.
Just the other day my youngest asked me to max out the screen (he was playing Minecraft at the time) to see how it looked. Knob,zoom and focus completed in ~15 seconds.
11' from 140" diagonal 16:9 image is pretty nice for gaming. Just wish PSN was back up.

From my seating area, I can notice it a bit with a 1080p image. Ive done everything I can think of to focus it.

Im projecting on a 158" screen, and dont know if its normal or to be expected at this size?
Wow! That is way off. If you bought it recently enough that you can return it to the place of purchase you should take that approach. Panasonic is not pleasant to deal with when it comes to convergence issues. If you do have to deal with Panasonic make sure you ask for a prepaid shipping label because they don't tend to volunteer them.
