DL1 Lens Options

We have a demo DL1 right now and are very excited about it and some of its capabilites. I was wondering, however, if it was possible to get a different lens installed into the projector that would provide a larger image size.

I've gone to Sanyo's website and done some research into the XP-45, and it does apperar that they offer different lens kits compatable with that projector. Can you physically get larger lenses installed (such as the Sayno model LNS-W31A) into a DL1? After taking some measurements, I'm gussing that the "standard" lens from Sayno is installed in the DL1, correct?

    Hi Chris,
    you are correct. Standard lens is installed in DL1 and there are optional lenses available for xp-45. However, we are not supporting the optional lenses. The long throw lens assembly will decrease the output to 1950 lumens - 2960 lumens over the zoom range. This is due to the increased F number in Sanyo design by going to a longer throw lens system. The wide angle lens requires an iris and sheet metal change.
