Strange but I wouldn't freak about an amateur video production. I've seen the 5050 side and side with all the Sony's and a couple of others including a +7K LG laser prototype and nothing about the Epson was blurry, out of focus or stood out in a negative way. I don't know these guys or their affiliations but I do know that videos with intentionally subtle and seemingly innocent things that are not not quite right are increasing in every sector including mass marketing...because without addressing the obvious, they strongly influence people to believe what they see and hear, not what they read, and question what they already know.....just ask the Russians, they are masters at it. hehe, they also divide people and make them argue about what they see...just like the above posts. If you don't consider it, you ain't thinkin'.
What I find strange is why Epson made and markets the 5050 and the 6050 near simultaneously? It might no be the best analogy, but what if a major AVR maker offered two near identical models, one in silver, one in black. The black one has 10 more watts per channel, comes with complimentary wires and cables, has a one year longer warranty, is harder to get and costs 50% more than the silver one. Maybe not a perfect comparison, but I think most can relate to it. I know which one I would buy, and I'm guessing I know which one the manufacturer wants me to buy. Auto makers do such things and call the higher volume, "bread and butter" model a "loss leader". Any other thoughts as to why Epson did this?
