Question Canon REALis WUX500 thoughts?

I am looking to place a projector into a fairly bright public space (public library) that is very large. It is hoped we will use the PJ with a screen of around 216" or even larger if we can (I need to measure). So, I was looking for a large venue type projector with higher brightness and ran across the Canon REALiS WUX500 for a tick over $3,000. This projector advertises 5000 lumens and is 1920x1080, motorized lens shift and more. Lighting can be diffused with our electronically controlled light diffusing blinds, so I think 5000 lumens should be sufficient..?
The PJ is intended for all around general use: Movies, presentations, and during concerts.
I will grab some measurements and maybe a pic to show you the space that I am talking about...
Any other PJ suggestions that won't break the bank? (Around $3k, or even less if possible, but don't be afraid to suggest higher if it is one of those slam-dunk-gotta-have-it things)

Might also consider Epson G7400U. Native contrast will be about the same, but has 5,500 lumens, powered lens and 4K E-shift.

Thanks, I'll take a look at it. I am also awaiting a call from PJPeople for cost and suggestions.
How about the screen? Will sticking with a standard gain (1.0) be OK for general use?

Screen depends on a lot of factors, room, use, budget and throw available. Would be happy to help you with selection. Shoot me an email.
