But having said that I have to admit that I only have two lens memories set up, one for "normal" 16x9 video and on for CinemaScope (2.39:1) size. The AE8000 does a great job of automatically detecting and switching between the two (zoom and focus). Occasionally there is a disk with grey bars instead of black bars and you need to manually switch settings, but that's pretty rare. I only have two because most images work well with those two settings. I don't mind a very small set of black bars above and below on some movies. For the occasional odd-ball (like The Big Trail (1930) at 2.20:1), I'll either live with it or manually tweak the zoom.
