BTW, in another thread it was suggested that Panamorph lenses including the DCR use plastic optics. I'm not sure where that idea came from so (repeating my reply from there) just to be perfectly clear Panamorph lenses are made from high end optical projection glass to higher than typical industry Mil-Spec standards with optimized AR coatings. It is true that they are hybrids of cylindrical and prism technologies which makes them expensive to produce, but they are certainly made completely from glass which is why when we say we've sold tons of lenses its quite literal.

Nice. Still waitin' for my installer and cabinet guy to finalize the plans to redo the back of my theatre for component racks, disc storage, and to hush and cool the projector. Once we have a date, my installer will order the DCR lens (and get my friend ASH off my back regarding my finally getting the lens for my Sony VW5000 projector). HA!
Ash Sharma and Craig Peer like this.

I posted that once before in the JVC thread and it got deleted by mods, so...I doubt that post survives very long

If I own a 2018 Sony VPL 885, does that mean I cannot use one of this Panomorph lens?

The DCR lens will work with any native 4K projector including the Sony’s.

Thank you Craig Peer. Only asked as the Panamorph web page says the lens is compatible with all 2019 Sony models. Gave me the impression that it is not compatible with 2018 😂

Hi everyone

Sorry if this question has been asked but I have a 16/9 screen, 3m base and a sony 760vw and I was wondering if adding a paladin dcr lens is making sense and bring significant added value (brigthness and black bars removing). I see that in most of the case the screen mentioned are 2.35:1.
Thank you.
