It looks like there is really only an improvement in on/off contrast ratio, rather than ANSI. With mixed-contrast scenes, there is virtually no change with the 8/9G displays, but with low-contrast images it's more visible:
I must say, it is a bit disappointing though, I was hoping for a bigger difference in black levels compared to last year. I was all set to go for the best 60ʺ model, but now I'm not so sure.
I wish Engadget had left the EXIF information embedded in the photos.
The ansi contrast on the 8G is amazing. I Find it's the on/off that needs
improving more than anything else. Also, you can't really get much blacker
than those pics you displayed. The ansi contrast for dark scenes are the
only things that need improving, but we don't see such shots.
Love the Pro-150FD as it is, even if it's not pefectly black yet. The actual
picture is just stunning. Looking forward to seeing the 151, but I gotta admit
(as I've said before) I might have to wait until the 10g anyhow because the
new house is costing too much.
