I actually have a 6030 and intend to buy an anamorphic lens at some point. However, my screen is 2.35:1, so for the time being I zoom out when watching 2.40 and 2.35 movies. I love the wide screen being filled for Cinemascope. For 2.20, 2.0, 1.85, 1.79 and 1.33 films, I use lightweight home-made black velvet side-masking panels. I like to create the cinema experience as accurately as possible. A bit pedantic, but that's me!The 5030 doesn't have modes for an anamorphic lens like the 6030, if you use a lens you need the 6030 or a video processor for the 5030. You can manually zoom and adjust the lens shift with the 5030, it is a bit of a pain but can be done or left in that position if most viewing is 2.35:1.
If you are doing 2.35 and use an anamorphic lens the curved screen is the way to go, if you use the zoom method a flat screen is fine. I prefer using an anamorphic lens and curved screen whenever possible but it is more expensive.
I would recommend putting super resolution at 2 and seeing if that helps. I also much prefer the FI on low for movies, don't think it's causing what you are describing, but I think the motion looks better. I'll only put it on high sometimes for sports.I have been a happy owner of the 5030 for a few months now
I have a issue I've noticed and I hope I don't have a major problem
I haven't really watched all that dark of movies but I have watched both the co hourlong and knowing and in certain scenes if a person moves on the screen it's like the outline around the person is distorted with what I call a halo blur.
It only lasts a second but noticed it in several spots in both movies
It's not always in fast motion scenes . It's just a little blurred fuzzy outline. Or if someone's face moves against a dark background it's like they leave a smudge of their face behind
Does anyone know what I'm talking about
My settings are in cinema mode and I use the iris and I have super resolution on 4. As well as frame interpolation on high

Will really miss the Epson but it is what it is. If onyl someone can confirm the qsony is indeed very quiet ceiling mounted
The Sony is very quiet, no matter how it is mounted. 40's in stock. Call us if we can help you. 5030's also in stock.I am not saying it is no good, just for me the pro's of the Sony outweigh the cons of the Epson. Will really miss the Epson but it is what it is.

My Oppo does the scaling so it isnt out of the question. What lens did you get and mount? Is it fairly easy to engage and disengage? I've always heard you want to avoid scaling pixes if you can as it can degrade your PQ (probably an oversimplification).Get an anamorphic lens, like I did. No more changing aspect ratios for me. I couldn't be happier.
