...and by years, I assume you mean never.
The use of a anamorphic lens is done the same way it was done in theaters over 50 years ago. You need a completely DIFFERENT lens to make it work. So, I'm not sure what you are asking for.
Personally, I think Epson should put their long/zoom lens on the cheaper 3020 and ditch the 8345 completely. Add motorized lens presets to the 5030 as Panasonic has had with the AE8000.
Then they may finally introduce their LCoS models, which will be a step up in price. But, with Sony nipping at $2,000 with LCoS, I'm not sure how expensive Epson can be in that area, uncles they offer a serious jump overall.
