does this improve upon the image resizing / size-reducing algorithms? I've noticed lately that certain downsized images are very poorly processed and at first glance the photos appear to be terrible. only by observing the original that the poster used can I get a glimpse of what was actually presented.

will there be more samples added as promised? seems like not much has changed since the initial major overhaul.

oscarvdvelde: I had a great Toshiba laptop with 17" screen of 1440·900 pixels. Now I have a laptop with 15.6" screen with 1600·900 pixels, it is more dense but frankly, I prefer the former. Images should be displayed larger, not smaller. I'd rather have 2880·1800 pixels in a 34" screen. On the other hand I suppose one could enlarge images 200% and get the same quality and size as before.

this new display should be great for you then. things will be the same size as on a 1440x900 display, but a pixel on the former will be represented by four pixels on the new 2880x1800 display. if there is enough information (like a multi-MP image that has more pixels than either and has to be scaled down), and given proper software support, things will appear sharper on your screen.

regarding this bit on page 3:
"Adding just the grip section results in pushing the tripod mount ever further off center."

isn't the tripod mount on the vertical grip about in line with the lens mount? why is it ever further off center?
