I am a newbie and after a ton of research was about to buy an HS10 when I decided to do more homework. I discovered that the throw distance for the HS-10 would mean a smaller screen than anticipated (I have one great mounting point in my cellar ceiling that is only 11' from the wall.) Then, I hear about the upcoming HS20. On a website recently I saw "Short-throw lens" as an option for the HS10. Is that true? Do any HS10 owners have this lens? I have asked my dealer the same question but have not received a response yet.

Thanks,

I don't have the lens, but one exists for the HS10. If memory serves me, I noticed on a HS20 buletin that it used the same model number. There is an outlet on the internet that sells "B" stock (open box, surplus) for substantially less. A few people have purchased this (it is a different model number, but the same specs.) and saved a lot of money.


If you don't get any better answers, I will see what I come up with tonight.

I would be interested in this info as well. The stock short-throw and long-throw lenses are $1500.00, half the price of the projector!

Huh? They have 5 in stock. I'm pretty sure this is accurate, since I bought one recently and the stock immediately dropped from 6 to 5. :)

The lens does have a little "b-stock" sticker on it, but appears to be in pristine condition.
