Lens shift for me. I don't need a HUGE amount of it, but I do need it (about 1/8 of a screen width and about 1/4 down from the top of my screen). I'm considering the 5010, but 3D isn't that big of deal for me, probably in the next projector in 2 or 3 years.. I almost had an 8350, but decided to hold out for CEDIA, and now why get the Epson when D9 based projectors are available. I also need that daytime blasting mode as an option, which the 3010 would also offer.
On the 3010 delay - I'm guessing firmware tweeks. Epson now has a Panasoinig 7000 in house I am sure. They are likely comparing how their unit performs - especially in 3D.
