You cannot have a hybrid of pancake and Fresnel afaik. Fresnel requires a greatest distance from the screen, the only way would be to have multiple screens at different distances from the lens. They already confirmed, it’s in the 12K reveal video, that the lenses are a Fresnel aspheric hybrid lens.
I think, we need to see the final specs first, not the announcement only. Otherwise, diopter adjustment may be wishful thinking only. Due to semiconductor shortage, the pandemic and other political distortions, I am very curious what Pimax will be able to achieve and when. For me, they are still front runners and outstanding with their FoV.
OK, thanks for confirmation. Regarding “hybrid” what can be or cannot be, we will see in future. Mankind is innovative.
