Sorry if this has been discussed before, but the search function has been disaled, and I'm still a little confused on short throw vs. long throw lenses. I plan on getting either the Sanyo Z1 or Sony HS-10 and know that the Z1 is short throw and the HS-10 uses a long throw lens. I plan on mounting the projector 13ft away from the screen and plan on sitting 10ft from the screen. What can I expect with the different lenses? Which is better for my room size?

go with long throw.. I have 13'x13' room just like you, but I will watch from ~12'6", since I will be on my bed with my head by the wall.. I would say HS10 is better, because you will still get large screen ~80"-90" diagonal, for such room this is enough .. If you go short throw like Z1, you will have to place PJ little closer since SHort throw will give you easily 100"+ screen from ~12' and from your viewing distance ~11;-10' you will more likely be bothered by screen doors. You can always zoom out, though ..
