I'm very pleased with my 40ES. It's not perfect but very good for the price IMO.

40ES has worse blacks if Epson iris is used but slightly better native contrast otherwise. No dust blobs on Sony. Not everyone is bothered by a dynamic iris. Epson on low makes more noise than Sony...

I'm not familiar with your lens but I believe most mounts allow you to tilt the A lens... Allowing you to use vertical lens shift by keeping the light path within the optics.

Great news! Was the 40ES left off off the list of supported projectors in error? Seems odd that the 50ES would be supported and the 40 wouldn't.

It's your money. The Sony might be worth the risk but you'd be better off spending the cost of a JVC on cocaine IMO. But hell I suppose I have some stuff in my setup they people say is crazy as well....

I believe the point is that if you can't treat the room you might as well go with a cheap single chip DLP like the BenQ 1070. Assuming you aren't bothered by rainbows it is plenty bright enough and...

I'd paint the walls and ceiling a darker color. A white ceiling is going to kill your contrast. I certainly wouldn't buy an expensive projector if I can't treat the room. It's not all about...

The best way to set contrast and brightness is with a test pattern like you'll find on Disney WoW etc. You do it by eye.. No meter required.

It seems to me that if fan noise is a concern that should be an easy choice. I don't think they are THAT far from each other performance wise other than fan noise and maybe bulb life.

Ive always wondered how Sony 'fixed' SXRD. Their rear projection units were a nightmare... But I don't hear anything along those lines with their projectors.
