For the Canadians on this form (yes there are more than a few of us). I recently received an email from Panasonic Canada stating that the AE4000 might not even be carried by them. I don't know if this is real or not, but in the past Panny Canada hasn't cared to much about us. Ow well if I have to buy from the US then that is what I (and many others) will do. Panasonic.CA's loss is Panasonic.USA's gain.
I have to go now, I have to clean up the mess a moose made of my garbage cans last night.

Thank you for your email to Panasonic Canada Inc.
We apologies for the inconvenience. There are many factors that determine pricing; It is uncertain at this time that the PTAE4000 will be released in Canada and if so to what price.
New releases are launch generally during the fall and spring time. All new releases for the fall have been released. More information should be available late winter early spring.

Dear Panasonic Canada
I have been a long time front projector fan and have had many Panasonic projectors (AE300 /700 / 900). I really wanted to buy a AX1000 but was put off by Panasonic Canada's unreal pricing and so I bought a Sanyo. When the AE3000 came out I wanted one of those as well; but again was so put off by the Panasonic Canada pricing (in comparison to the USA) that I bought a projector from the states. With the recent announcement of the AE4000 I am hoping that the Canadian price is very close to the US price. If not, that is it for Panasonic and me. Please don't respond with a form mail about Canadian / USA differences such as bi-lingual manuals and packaging...... We have heard it before and it is a bunch of BS (and you know it).
Hoping to a MSRP of 2500$
