Lens error

The lens is not perfect; the focus over a large flat screen is not uniform. Try"correcting" the 'non-focused' area by moving your projector away from dead center and varying the distance to the...

4k uhd when and where?

Yes, 4K/UHD from a streaming SONY source and then copied to hard drive may be compromised and not classified as the real 4K/UHD.
We may have to wait until delivered via shiny silver discs. ...

Best 4k movie

That's easy. "Lawrence of Arabia". This film was a 70mm print and lovingly restored twice with 8K processing. It is gorgeous.

LOOK FOR THE 70 mm TITLES

I wouldn't bother to convert any of these titles to 4K; well, maybe "SALT". There is only one 70mm title available: it is "LAWRENCE OF ARABIA". It is a knockout in 4k compared to Blu-Ray. ...

Nice 350 Lens

The 350 has a 14 element glass lens with an aspheric front element; I assume coated.
Not bad for only $10K.
