Saw the Nexnix Z1 deal and went for it. Basically £700 for new Z1 and a dvd/video combi thrown in. Full pixel check was £40 so I let them keep the dvd/vid in exchange for the check. I didn't need a cheapo combi player and would have sold it anyway. Also got an 82" manual pulldown to boot. Well I will be viewing from in excess of 1.5 ratio and as I will be 'table' mounting the PJ the lens shift should come in handy!! I was going to try and get a good deal on an ae 500 but that didn't materialise (It would have really stretched the bank account).....hopefully I won't regret it. Now that I've finally done it.........I can't wait to play.
