I should rephrase that and say that most similarly priced competition have better lenses in regards to CA. Among those are the Marantz VP-11S1 (11S2), VP-15S1, Sharp XV-Z20000, Planar PD8150, Samsung SP-A800B (and 900B), InFocus IN82/IN83, BenQ W20000. I have owned all of these models and had less CA. I can confidently say that the CA shows up more on the Sim2 and I don't really care if you agree with me or not. Please do a search for the 3000 and 3000E and you will find members saying this. This lens is used on the 3000, 3000E, D80, D80E, D75, and HT380. Those are the ones I'm aware of and there could be more. I haven't been following along to with their current line of products.
It should be noted that while there is "more" CA, that doesn't mean it will be an issue and I never meant to make it sound like it was. I was just trying to point out that because the lens isn't designed for the specific light path behind it can cause issues with CA. Obviously Sim2 has a tolerance level and it shouldn't be so much where it's visible from a normal viewing distance, and it isn't. I don't understand why you're arguing about this. I was in no way trying to say the 3000E is a bad product. I'm just stating one aspect of the projector isn't perfect.Edited by Seegs108 - 10/26/13 at 10:18am
