Focusing would be much easier if they numbered it! Like sharpness. realise each focus will be different according to throw, but at least with it being numbered you have reference point and know where the sweet spot is rather than messing around with it each time. Then again most are set and forget, mine gets changed all the time though.

Some projectors hold focus remarkably well over a substantial zoom range so it may not be a significant issue

Throw distance is 6.45m in a 7.67m room which at this stage is only affected by minimal daylight. Evening it's effectively 100% light controlled.
Projecting on to a 150" 2.35:1 ScreenTechnics ElectriCinema motorised screen.
I've been using the zoom and lens memory function to handle swapping between 16:9 and 2.35:1 and with the memory it just makes it so easy.
Havent tried turning off the 4k eshift and comparing on vs. off - zooming for 2.35:1 with the eshift on the image is in my opinion superb. At this stage I've taken all thoughts of getting a lens off the table, it's just not required for the quality of image that I'm getting from a 1080p source.
Over on AVS there was several that suggested to run the X70 in THX mode out of the box for the first couple of hundred hours and this is what I've done - I'm extremely happy with the picture.

Is there a draught on stock? Or a new version around the corner worth waiting for
