The Optoma's can still take advantage of all 8.3m pixels and I will take that over 4m pixels with a better lens. If you want 3chip with DI the 6050ub is a good alternative to the $8k Sony 385, you don't get native but your not overpaying for the name. As you said no display is perfect. Pick your poison. For me the Theo Z65 is best option.
I had the UHZ65 version and it is a great projector. Congratulations and enjoy this Theo version. I never had a problem with the UHZ65 lens. 1) I found its images were sharp and detailed. 2) The machine had excellent tone-mapping and very good dynamic contrast. 3) In fact, contrast was never an issue for me. 4) Brightness was outstanding and even calibrated, the UHZ65 delivered a bright, dynamic picture for whatever the need, movies, stills, presentations, etc.
Some of the issues I had were:
1) A slight bluish hue from the laser; it could be pretty much calibrated out but at times, I liked the touch in dark scenes as it more resembled reality/real natural light.
2) Brightness compression when using DB2...faces took on a compressed, blown out look.
3) RBE became more pervasive.
How do you find the Theo version deals with these positive and negative points that I observed on the UHZ65 version? I should ask if you're RBE sensitive too.
