Agreed, lack of 1:1 worrisome. But did not see Craig Peer, Mike (who helped talked Craig into quality A lens like Paladin), or some folks in the 20k+ gear section complain about lack of sharpness. With compression, the pixels are smaller on screen so visual acuity can mask issue some what. Also high brightness helps perception of contrast/sharpness. Sooo, took a big leap of faith based on experienced folks impressions, and B stock pricing helped enable leap.. At full retail, on my salary and investments, would have been a harder leap
That said, based on your excellent projection dream website, you are obviously much more experienced than I. so yes, still a bit worried
I'ld already been thinking if JVC scaler indeed has visible issues, even with compressed sized pixels and my viewing distance, next project would be madvr at least for favorite titles
Toying with idea of getting entry level full frame camera so you guys could a/b, but the thought of folks like you, arrow, Javs, markmon1, madshi etc critiquing them, its a bit daunting lol
