Thanks for the motivation. I suppose a round of "internet research" is in order. You mentioned one characteristic of my current lens that drives me nuts.....falloff (or vignetting). But also sharpness/resolution. I'm guessing prime lenses are superior to zoom.
Last night I peeked in the closet. Yup, the projector and a few carousels are still there, along with a Da-Lite screen (but my flat white wall seems to work better).
