I think you only option is higher end older units in the used market but I am not positive. The Sharp 30K had a list of $4999 and sold for about $2000 but they did not make many, and sharp is out of the projector business.. The few that are still out there new are being sold buy highway robbers or are defective. The projector was good for 3D but not so great in 2D

Take a look at older > $5000 original list units to see which ones had the option the determine availability. Also call AVS to inquire about Bstock units as well as high end used.

Not in this price range.
You best bet is to call the sales guys at AVS and they can probably give you a list off the top of their heads of all the models under $10,000 that have this feature made in the past 5 years. Then research the units that are in your price range be they new or used.
In the higher end market you don't use the zoom method, you buy a lens.

I just checked today AVS's b-stock page - they have a number of high end Sonys right now for less than $3K - b-stock with full warranties. I believe one or two of those models have lens memory - they had list prices of over $7,000 - but i could be wrong.

"Don't forget that a significant contribution made by the use of high-end cabling is emotional. Knowing that you have the best available causes the listening and viewing to be that much more enjoyable. Observable improvements make it even better."
