The Optoma HD8300 is a DLP with lens shift, Iris and DC3. Its not mentioned in this thread because its MSRP is $5000 but there are refurbs on EBay for under $2500. From the reviews I read its a very impressive projector but not to sure of its reliability. It would be my projector of choice but I am also a big 3D fan and these projectors are as good or better than an IMAX theater for 3D. The JVC would be the best 2D performer.
