how important is having lens shift on your projector. What does it even do?

I think so, it was not as easy as thought it would be to get the picture to fit my screen.

Lens shift allows you to move the projected image up and down and left and right without changing the angle of the projector itself. I think it is as important as zoom. A zoom lens allows you to place the projector APPROXIMATELY the correct distance from the screen, making the fine adjustment with the zoom. Similarly, lens shift allows you to place the projector in APPROXIMATELY the correct position left-to-right and vertically, making the fine adjustment with the lens shift.

If you can get it, get it! It will make an ultimate tweak job soooo much easier and your mounting options will open up like a book. you may have to go back occasionally to just trim things up after settling, but it takes all of 2.7 seconds to do.

If you can't tell, I'm a fan of it.

Don't even think of buying a projector without lens shift. I am sold on this feature on my Panny 700, it makes ceiling mount, or shelf mount, set up alignment a snap, as opposed to being a very tedious job. I am also sold on the 2X zoom lens on the Panny 700, which enables you to put the projector at the back of the room, instead of the middle of the room where it is a distraction. Panny 700- the only way to go!
