Jim - the trade in seams like a good way to stay current with the newer model lines. I was wondering though, will the 20xx models be upgradable to 4K input in the future?

My projector is 12 from an 8' wide screen. The Prismasonic lenses seem to be more forgiving for short throws, at least that's my experience. I don't have much pincushion at all. I just set the zoom...

Probably not, seeing how this lens was discontinued a few years ago. With the Front Element upgrade, it is essentially the 1500 model, which was later replaced with the 5000 (I think). The P-100 is...

Ya, just take a look at the Nikon or Zuiko (Oly) 300mm F2.8. A friend of mine just got the Nikon used for $5000, and thought that was a great deal. HE lenses aren't exactly mass produced either.

The lens should be as close to the projector as you can get it. I have just moved from the 1400/FE to the C100F and with both lenses, they were within 1/2" to the projector. They can't be too close,...

M3's sound quite a bit different than M22's. M2's sound simular. You could always try laying them down and give that a go to find out if they sound OK to you. It won't hurt them.

Axiom offers custom wood finished of all sorts. Different wood types, stains, finish. I have a few and they do a very nice job. If you like the way they sound, that's a whole different matter.
