Forget the Sony, it's HDR capabilities are partially handicapped and it's not very bright (which is going to handicap HDR in itself).
You would also 'possibly' be taking a sharpness hit with the Sony compared to the JVC or Optoma.
The Sony is more hit or miss on convergence and lens issues (russian roulette), even the newer Sonys.
For HDR, the JVC's have the most expanded DCI-P3 coverage, but I think there is a filter you can buy for the UHZ-65 to gain more coverage.
I'm not sure how much difference coverage % makes in real world viewing, the UHZ 65 has brighter torch modes but way more inaccurate color.
A used or B-Stock JVC RS-540(x790) is going to be the best overall for picture quality. I think the native contrast gain of the JVC would be way more interesting than the HDR capability.
You'll need some 3rd party tone mapping stuf to go with it, the Panasonic UB820 or MadVR I think is what most are using, but there is some other stuff you can.
Heck, for that price you might ALMOST be able to find a new RS-540, if JVC releases another final batch before being fully discontinued (they might this month supposedly).
It's going to be hard to beat a JVC at that price range, not sure I'd spend that much money on anything else, but the UHZ-65 would be pretty good.
