I believe the RS46 (and the other previous-to-X500 models) were about 75ms -- JVC blessed us with the additional lag when they introduced the iris and unfortunately it is not avoidable even when...

The height of the image is the key factor in my opinion, as whatever 16:9 image height you are comfortable with, you will find that a 2.35:1 screen that supports that image size will work well too.

No it won't -- I have tested this configuration and you would need the HDSSW065 version for the JVC X500 at max zoom.
