My 08-85 is for sale if anyone is interested
I felt 3D was too dim on dark scenes with the 08-85 even with my Epson. I believe they recomend 3500-4000 lumen projector calibrated. Bright movies are no problem even in the day.
Did you already change to the DNP 23-23? Can you live with the sparkling issues?
I'm in the same (almost) situation as you are. I want light control and I want a nice picture in 2D but also in 3D.
I did see DEMO of both material (0.8 and 2.3 gain) and I'm not sure what I should do.
I could see sparkles/shining with the 23 23 but could not with the 0.8 gain. However the brightness was perfect for 3D with the 23 or with ambient light. However with light off, it would be way too bright with almost any projector! I want to project on a 120" screen ( I already have one cheap white 120" screen at home).
I think this shining effect is proportional to brightness. Maybe it can be almost "removed" with the 23 material with low brightness output from the projector for 2D viewing (manual iris or neutral grey filter).
The other option is to find a reaaaally bright projector for the 08 85 material that could work for 3D viewing but which one (sony 1000ES put aside)?
