But the seller tells that it will be shipped at least from 15th of April.........
I don't even know why.....
Hello, Bonjour! I hope English is OK. My French is terrible and I wish to be respectful to all readers.
No one seems to be able to answer these questions so I turn to where I probably should've' gone first, here.
Sony support, my local installer and the product manual does not have the answer.
I need help from an actual owner of this projector (VPL-VW1100ES)
I intend to use this projector in a planetarium with a hemispherical mirror system. (http://paulbourke.net/dome/)
I currently have a very good setup with 1920x1080 Epson.
The Epson specs did not list the minimum focus-able throw at 1 meter, but it does.
This answers will determine if we upgrade and I (and my students) REALLY appreciate your help on this.
What is the ACTUAL minimum throw distance this projector will still focus? (1 meter?)
What is the size of this minimum image?
Rear Projection option, Yes or No? (image inverted)
Thank you and Merci Beaucoup!
I do believe the projector has the necessary inversions to do rear projection with a mirror.

I appreciate your help and this calculation as it brings up a mathematical way to rate this project "go or no go."
The first surface hemi-mirror is 0.45 m wide and the image would have to fit onto it.
Reversing your calculations then, a "focused" throw would need to be ~0.56 meters.(not the rough 1.0 meter I pulled out of the air.)
There are larger Hemi-Mirrors too?
I measured the current Epson setup and sure enough...it's at 60cm throw.
By the way... I'll post the results on the international planetarium list serve and this knowledge will be multiplied as I suspect other small planetariums around the world will duplicate once they are set up here and proven and each theater has thousands of visitors. So in a way you're enhancing tens of thousands of people's experience, mostly kids.
PS Sony got back to me, they don't know the answer, but will dig in and he did tell me that the ship date on the 1100ES have been moved back from December '13 and that April '14 (early) is the next ship date, confirming Grifo's post. I asked why the move and he said it's all the way back to the factory but didn't know what the hang up is.

I will answer this from the perspective of my 600, rather than the 1100, since I have not viewed the 1100 enough. Black levels between the 45 and the 6009 are close and would need a side by side to tell the difference. Panning motion goes to the Sony. Brightness, sharpness and resolution goes to the Sony. So in my room the 600 easily gets the nod, but then it should at the price difference. With my 9' wide 2.40 0.85 gain screen the added brightness is much appreciated.
Anamorphic lenses shouldn't degrade pixel structure or SDE. If it does you have a poor quality lens. I know both the ISCO IIIL and UH480 I have don't degrade pixel structure or SDE.
