I'm looking for a projector with lens shift 78% of screen height or more, under $2000.

So far, the only options I've found are the Epson 8350 and 5010, which have 96% lens shift. Are there any other options?

If basing it the way Epsons publish vertical shift, then the Epsons and Panasonics are the only ones I can think of that have a ton of lens shift.

I see you've stated under $2000, but I know of one just slightly over 2k ($188 more with shipping included the last time I checked to be exact) that does 100% vertical lens shift. The Mitsubishi HC5 http://www.mitsubishielectric.com.au/assets/vis/HC5_brochure.pdf . As far as 2D goes it will be in a different league of PQ, than the other projectors you've mentioned. Should hang with the Sony vw95 in PQ, just slightly brighter because of the higher lamp wattage 230 vs Sony's 200 watts..

Which Panasonic? I was looking at the PT-AR100U, but it only has 65% vertical lens shift.

The 8350 is a great value.
