Okay, but not convinced.

This is the original size of jpeg sample. http://photo.yodobashi.com/sigma/img/imp/dp2q/08b.jpg

7. After all, the difference of IQ is not so big, but the user experience is a big difference. Easy to use, quick response, and great IQ.

I think that's it; better user experience (responsiveness) while maintaining good IQ.

The downside seems to me, that IQ has changed but it's neither better nor worse. It only seems different ... the resolution might be little higher now, but I didn't see fine color detail so far in any sample. In contrary ... beside the old birds, the linked one from yodobashi is horrible in the shadows. And the six samples from DigitalCamera.jp don't seem to be less hard detailed/sharpened than Merrill samples. I even think, they look harder ... may be because I always tend to use -0.7 sharpness with Merrills, okay.

The ones from MapCamera are downsized. Yet you can see line noise in the ISO 800 image. Less color blotches here, but no fine color detail as well.

Of course, we will have to wait for RAW, since every reviewer chooeses his own development settings ... and the images may actually be better than they got developed from the reviewers.
