You can see the Sony in action at "Audio Advice", on Carolina Place Parkway next to the mall, about 5 minutes from my (current) house. But beware - it has a puny 1.6x zoom so, depending on your screen size, you may have to mount it closer than you would like. Almost tripped me up. I have a 110" screen in the theater room I'm building and a 17.5' throw distance to the screen. The 50EX can't zoom in enough at that distance to fit into the 47" of vertical space on my 'scope ratio screen. I'm going with a projector with a bigger, electronic zoom so I can change aspect ratios quickly and easily (the Sony has a manual zoom - dumb).
