The lens on the 1000ES is equal to NX9 most likely. Lumens are basically the same. The only difference here will be HDR support and if you're tone mapping prior to the projector that won't matter either.
I know you are convinced that making pixels 1/4 the size they are at 4K is going to be the next big thing. But pixels are already too small for most to really benefit from 4K as they sit too far back. Even then, the difference between 4k and 1080p is slight, subtle. The difference between 4k and 8k would be even more slight and more subtle.
At 4K, I'm already at the point where I can disable anti aliasing in games and not see jaggies. 8K won't be able to improve upon that unless I push closer to the screen. I'm already 7 feet from 135" not sure how much closer I can even get. Probably no more without my head becoming a big shadow in the image.
Yes that is my hunch too............but I guess you will never really know until have you have them side by side.
....and that is the really tempting part.
Got quite a bit of flack a few years back on this very forum for actually preferring the way my little Panny AE2000 handled some stuff relative to the 1000es.
One area where I know the NX9 has definitely got the 1000/1100es beat is with posterization(or the lack thereof).
Lens,contrast,ANSI and even tone mapping are potentially minor differences favouring either one or the other projector.
HDMI 2.0 and BT2020 have given no discernible advantage to the rs600 over the 1000es in my 2 year experience of having the 2 PJs.
As for native 8K.....I would be very curious to see it first before drawing any conclusions.
Which is where laying out a bucket load of money for either the NX9 or the 995es in 2018-19.......only to find a native 8K PJ on the market by 2019/20 is another factor to take into consideration.
And anyways ....looking forward to changing my name to the Sony8KRises
....or the JVC8KRises
But anyways a huge fan of the rs600 and i am sure the NX9 is fantastic
