I hope this is the correct forum to post this type of question in, if not I apologize!

I recently purchased a storage unit at auction and a brand new
Barco EN41 33.7-49.54mm f/2.1-2.5 High-Resolution Standard Zoom Projector Lens was one of the items in the unit. I have done some research and it seems it is Panorama WQXGA and for possibly for business use whatever that means. I have no clue where to even start on finding a buyer for this lens, Any information on what the lens is used for or help to point me in the right direction is massively appreciated. Thank you


(Edit: Found conflicting information if the lens is 4k or not so I am not sure if it is or not)

eBay is the most typical place to sell things like this.

Barco is all about making specialized parts for specific products, then getting rid of said product so that part becomes mostly worthless. Even though it may have cost $1,000 or $5,000 or more for that custom made lens, it may only fit one or two different projectors that Barco manufactured. Projector lenses are NOT standardized in any way, so once a projector lens no longer has a projector that it fits, it becomes pretty much useless.

I would contact Barco and find out which projectors it is designed to work with, or do research on the subject, then sell accordingly.

Here is Barco's page covering the lens...

While B&H sells it for about $5,000, it would shock me if you could get much more than $1,000 on eBay.
