Can you post pics?
I did use the pattern. And in the beginning, everything looks sharp. But when paying closer attention it's not that sharp at all (there is some coloured haze around the white line). See pics.

That definitely is not focused like it should be.
I would give Epson tech support a call and if the can’t fix it with a hard reset or something, I would be requesting a new projector.
The menu looks sharper but also has a purple/blue/green haze around it when paying close attention.

I did not use any keystone. Checked it twice, and reset to default just to be sure.
Made some more pics, see attachment. The most blurry one of the clock is 4k resolution. It's even way more blurry then 1080p.
I notice when using the panel alignment there is always a purple haze above the white line when looking up close. This haze will only disappear when I align the red color more downwards. But that makes the red line visible so that's not good.
My phone actually captures more haze (green/red/purple-ish) then I can see on the screen.
When looking at the letter "t" I can see that the horizontal bar on the t should be 2 pixels wide. Up close it's more like 2 pixels wide and some colored haze on both sides. When I really focus on getting the picture clear I can make it 2 pixels wide but then other uniformity's appear.
What I find really strange is that the left side of the ^ symbol in the bottom right corner is always blurred. The right side seems kind of straight although somewhat blurry. But the left side of the ^ symbol is completely out of focus.
I did try all kinds of zooming, lens shifting etc. But the left side of the ^ symbol always stays blurry for some reason.
Will call Epson right away on Monday.
