Even if the quality of the prisms is better and there are more
layers of coating it doesnt justify a whopping $3000
They dont have to strive to make such perfect lenses.
How many people here have a projector that is $5000 or more
to justify buying a $3000 lens. Just like there are budget projectors
like IN72 that has an image quality of a $5000 projector, there
could be a budget lens too.
All we need is something like sams prisms that works and that has a
simple enclosure. If someone wants a sled then they have to pay more.
It shouldnt cost more than 50 bucks to make a MDF enclosure.
