I am strongly considering this projector given all I've read. My theater is still under construction, but there are limitations to projector placement given its structure. I've read as much as I could find on this forum, and it seems that the maximum throw allowed by the T2 lens is 2.4. The T3 lens is rated for greater than 2.6. Unfortunately it seems that my throw will be somewhere in the range of 2.4 to 2.6. Is the T3 even available yet? If so, does anybody know the ACTUAL throw numbers and quality of this lens?

Thanks for any help!!

C3X1080T1 (short-throw lens 1.37-1.66:1)
C3X1080T2 (Standard lens throw ratio 1.75-2.45:1)
C3X1080T3 (long-throw lens 2.6-3.9:1)

If your room is still under construction. I would consider moving to the middle of one of the throw ranges above. Most are using the T2 lens.

I have no idea on availabilty check with your dealer.

T3 lens is available now. Because of the chip size the T2 which use to give long throw with the older model now gives the same as the T1 with the old chip. The new T3 throw was needed to bring back the original T2 specs which happens to extend the trow even further.
