Hello David & Ian

You should find the picture will be about 10% wider / taller at the 32mm end of the zoom range when compared to the 35mm end of your current lens zoom range.

ie: a 5 foot wide picture will be 5.5 foot wide etc.

It will also be brighter as Ian's lens is F1.3 compared to your F1.6

Thanks Kevin,

at present i'm getting a picture size of almost 4ft across and would like a bigger image from a throw of approx 12ft - but i'll have to get back to you with an accurate length.

Hi Kevin - my actual throw from projector to screen for 16mm is just over 14ft.

Hello David

With the zoom set to 32mm at a throw of 14 feet your picture will be approximately 4.5 feet wide.

This is 10% wider than using your current 35-65mm zoom range lens and brighter too.
