No, I noticed it too on the Sammy and it has nothing to do with the stickers, look and compare in the first shootoff in the lower left corner. You'll see that quite a bit of the building closest to that corner is missing from what you see on the smaller 50" Panny, it's also chopped on the right but the lower left is where you'll pinpoint it best. Kind of strange that a larger screen would give you less in the frame.
In the second shoot-off I would say hands down my pref would be the Sammy. I don't see the loss of the shadow detail in the Sammy but if it is there I would still take it over all the bloom I see on both Pannys, I can't stand the white-wash look.
***NOTE*** Well, looks like I should of kept reading through the thread to the end before commenting on the first shootout..... I see that Chris has explained the reason for the missing pixals on the Sammy just fine and an understandable error. It may have resulted in a difference of opinions on the original shootout but either way, I see in the last shootout that it would still be the Samsung for me. IMHO
