Hilarious. Most of the listed pros/cons do not exist then!That is saying you have a 16x9 panel so the edges of a 17x9 image will not be projected.
Just motorisation and quality of lens.
That said, we're looking at twice the price to get a secondhand Runco. Would it be twice as good?
I'm still thinking that for a 'small' cost of the Anamorphot 50, I could get a nice increase in brightness (my primary reason for lens purchase - to improve HDR), sharpness, with perhaps minimal tradeoffs. I don't think I'll be going backwards, just not as insanely great forwards as the ISCO 3 (at probably three times the price).
I know, I know, a lens is likely to be a long term investment so $4000 over ten years sound cheap at $400/year...
