    Maybe a silly question but although i see plenty of people talking about this lens for other projectors, nobody talks about one for the toshiba MT1z. Even if nobody makes one for mine, how much are these lenses, also who sells them?. ( I've got a feeling the MT1z plus the forth coming MT2z will be very big in the budget home cinema market). ANY replies on this subject would be gratefully received. , Thanks Paul.....

    F: The panamorph is a seperate lens I think that sits in its own enclosure in front of your chosen projector. Don't think that there'd be any problem suing it with your unit.

    It would allow you to use the full resolution of your 4:3 lcd panel to play back anamorphic discs as the lens would squeeze the image vertically.

    You would have a problem using it to watch 4:3 material and letterbox stuff though unless your Toshiba has user definable aspoect ratio's. The solution would be to remove it when watching these.

    I don't think there is a UK distributor, although I may be wrong.
