Not sure if this would be worth the $$$, using the old master is a serious mistake IMO.
I recently upgraded my DVD R1 copy.
Unless there is a full-blown restoration, I think I will stay with what I have.
It appears to be a new restoration, not the one used for the MOC DVD that I posted a link to. From Criterion's description:
DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION:
New high-definition digital film restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
Three additional films by director Claude Lanzmann: A Visitor from the Living (1999, 68 minutes), Sobibor, October 14, 1943, 4 p.m. (2001, 102 minutes), and The Karski Report (2010, 54 minutes)
New conversation between critic Serge Toubiana and Lanzmann
Interview with Lanzmann about A Visitor from the Living and Sobibor
New conversation between associate director of photography Caroline Champetier and filmmaker Arnaud Desplechin
PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Kent Jones and writings by Lanzmann
