Has anyone heard of an F1.2 Lens being used on this projector?
I thought the PJ came with a standard Sankyo Zoom f: 1.4 \ F: 15-25 mm or at extra cost the Hi-Pro Zoom f: 1.0 \ 15-30 mm. just wondering if the lens might be from another make

My Sankyo ST800 originally came with a F1.3 lens, which I replaced with an F1.0 Hi-Pro lens. Never heard of an F1.2 for the Sankyo, but maybe.

Sankyo also built the Bell & Howell DC range that are practically identical to the later Sankyos (700, 702 etc).

I think the DCM or DCT comes with the F1.2 lens. Yours may have been swapped from one of these.

my B&H DCT came with the F1.2 lens. Now I am looking for the Hi-Pro lens.
