Yes it does. It's the same disc as the "4K" single release. I didn't hear anything about Sony doing another transfer.

It is a new encode, from the same 4K master/transfer used for the prior Mi4K release, the bitrate is a bit lower but the differences are not egregiously noticeable. If one desires the utmost quality currently available for BR pickup the Mi4K but again the differences are marginal.

Unlike another release that had a new encode with a lower bitrate that has various compressions artifacts that no one noticed but were quite apparent upon my viewing of STID IMAX edition.

If you are watching on a gigantic screen, it's probably wise for videophiles to stick with the original 4K solo release.

You're wrong. They did re-encode it.

Had no idea it had a new encode. Are there any comparison pictures?

Nope. The MI4K version has ever-so-slightly finer detail and grain reproduction. The double-feature encode is comparatively smoother.

Only visible when flipping back and forth between static screenshots. And even then, just barely. This is the very definition of a negligible difference.

Anyone who doesn't already have the prior Mi4k disc can safely buy the new two-pack and not worry about the video quality.

Sure, but they are not "exactly the same."

I have both and the Mi4K version has an average bit rate about 8-10 mbps higher than the most recent release with GB 2, though they are clearly from the same master. The condition of the film elements or the original quality of the shooting is not particularly good for whatever reason; however, GB 2 looks really good overall.
