I really hope that Pimax has given their full attention to resolving all the optics issue that it deserves.
It was bad enough that the Pimax 4K had so many problems with lenses, IPD and focus, but if any of these problems are repeated in the 5K and 8K units, then it will be very likely that Pimax as a company will lose credibility and fail in the VR market.
With these new products, not only are they significantly more expensive in themselves than the 4K, but if you add the extra expense of necessary upgrades to the computer system, then we are talking about spending a lot money.
VR is all about creating a high quality visual experience and if poor optics ruins this experience (like it does in the 4K) then I doubt that people will be willing to spend their money on these products.
If we use the Nolo unit as an example. What a disappointment this product has truned out to be.
We were all looking forward to this becoming available and living up to the marketing hype, but as soon as we saw all the stability and reliability problems that people reported with this product, we stopped buying it.
This will also happen with the new Pimax 5K/8K units if the original mistakes are repeated.
I write about this subject again because of my concerns that this WILL happen again with the new Pimax units and
the reason I have these concerns is that after many requests about clarification on the optics system's IPD and focus adjustment mechanisms of the new units, there has not yet been a satisfactory statement from Pimax that gives me confidence.
