I am replacing a Sanyo Z2 that has done "yeoman service" for me but it is getting to be time.

I need a 100" diagonal thrown from a distance of 15'6". (no, the Z2 is not doing that.)

Seems either of these two PJs can accomplish this.

The Epson seems to offer way more "bang for buck" than the Panny which costs substantially more than twice as much.
Why would I choose to spend so many more $$ for the 8000 over the Epson? I wonder if I am missing something important.
I appreciate the Panny is a little brighter but, other than that, I am at a loss as to why the price difference is so great.
3D is of no consequence to me.

Help, please.

Are you considering other models than just these 2? Of all the current projectors in the 2-3k range, the Panasonic 8000 was my last pick in the shootout we did this year against many of the popular models in this price category.

if you're mainly focused on 2D, you should consider the JVC RS46. it's basically the same price at the Panasonic 8000 and the PQ imo is noticeable better in regard to contrast and especially color uniformity which is a sore spot for this Panasonic model.
