So who is the closest to the 5000 predicted hours?


I would like to know if this high lamp life is wishful thinking or represents reality, namely on the panny ae300.


TIA

Hmmm....



Not too encouraging...The only guy with over 3000 hours has melted his unit...


Seeing this, I don't think extra lamp life on the panasonic will be such a selling point anymore...


I guess the Z1 is looking better everyday...except for the dust blobs...

I hope they keep on melting so that I can trade in under warranty for the new Panny models every year!!:D AE100-AE300-AE400!!:D .


In all seriousness though for every AE100 owners sake, I hope that it was the huge amount of hours that I put on it in such a short space of time that melted it. Rather than 'The optics melt after 3000 hours' and a Panasonic response of "It took you 2 years to rack up 3000 hrs Sir before your optics melted but I'm afraid the warranty is only for a year. Sorry"

My advice is if you like what you've read about the z1 and think it would be a good choice then don't let the thought of potential dust blobs hold you back.


A) they are easy to clean


B) they aren't just a Z1 issue although I do have to say the air filter in the z1 is somewhat flimsy


C) there is no guarantee that you'll get any in the first place
