When you say screen caps, what are you looking for exactly, frame by frame so you can scrutinize PQ, or a few caps of the GUI? What features are you concerned about? Most of us in this forum who've had both prefer the Sony over all.
I bought the sony, and I am amazed by the feature set. But my main interest is in blu ray playback first and foremost. This is my first player, so my only point of reference for HD is OTA and directv. I thought there would be a much bigger difference between 1080i broadcasts and 1080p blu ray. The quality difference is much more subtle than I expected.
I've read both the panasonic 220/320 and sony 390/590 threads in their entirety (and a lot of the panny 110/210 thread as well), and the panny seems to draw a lot of praise for blu ray playback.
So, if anyone has screencaps of the sony vs. panny, that would be awesome.
