    Lens system question

    I have had 3 projectors, 2 Sanyo and 1 Optima. With the 2 Sanyos, once I had it focused I could adjust the zoom and it would stay in focus. On the Optima, if I adjust the zoom I have to re-focus. I assume this is a difference in the lens system but I can't find any info on it. If I get another...
