Sherm,
Yes, about 2000 S/N's higher; but in the same S2HB sequence. That was why I posted the message asking others for their S/N's. It could be nothing more than poor QC on Panasonic's part. However, it could also be a lot of variability in some upstream process, or a running change they didn't tell us about. Although the latter would usually start a new S/N sequence - at least where I used to work. In any case, I'm thoroughly enjoying what the newest one can do.

Are you comparing JPGs or Raws? If you're comparing JPGs then you might have inadvertently used settings which degraded the image. I know that when I got the camera last year I started with nr=0 and sharp=0 and didn't pay much attention to the various "i" settings. Now I use nr-2 and sharp-2 with iRes=zoom (I use the cropped raw file and discard the JPG for zoom > 24x).
