    I have a used P11 in very good condition considering sitting infront of me. I know the P66 is much newer.....is it worth the money to say in the $700-1000 region?

    Appreciate anyone's comments.

    I have the P11 also and find the projected image to be super. Now, I don't believe the P66 would make them any better, but it might make showing slides a tad easier. I don't use a slide projector enough to warrant and upgrade from the P11 so I'll stay where I am, but you might be different. JohnW

    The P66 halogen lamp is cheap and easy to get, whereas the P11 lamp is more expensive and rare.

    This being the MF forum, the P11 ability to project those smaller slides is of no importance, probably...

    Still nice to have the ability to check out a random 35mm slide or two, but truth is there are better/easier 35mm slide projectors out there for the cheap. So, just have one for medium format and one for 35mm.
