Buhl has some information on their web site http://buhloptical.com/whats_dlp.html:


"Introducing Buhl's Wide Angle and Telephoto

Attachment Lenses for DLP and LCD Projectors

Pittsburgh, PA (July 3, 2001) – Buhl Optical is proud to announce their new series of DLP and LCD projector accessory lenses. Buhl has been working with the leading manufacturers of DLP projectors to develop a series of wide angle and telephoto adapter lenses that attach in front of the existing lens to produce wider images for rear projection applications as well as allowing the projector to be placed further away from the screen for long throw applications.


Buhl’s new 0.65x and 0.70x wide-angle attachments and 1.5x telephoto attachment lenses join the soon to be introduced Buhl Flip-It line of mirrors as innovative solutions for use with today’s compact and super compact projectors. Typical applications are for rear screen presentations in boardrooms, tradeshow booths and in video walls as well as in classrooms and church presentations. These attachment lenses are available for projector brands such as Plus, Eiki, Sony, Sharp, Canon, Sanyo and Proxima."


It looks like it may solve my problem of having to spend an extra $1,500 to $2,000 for a long throw lens. Since it looks like a single element lens that goes in front of the projector, it might cost substantially less than a replacement zoom lens. Does anyone have any more information on this product?


Thanks,

Chuck Davis

Never mind. I just talked to Buhl, and this lens is for small projectors and it's more expensive than a replacement zoom lens.
