The high contrast 2.4 model doesn,t compare well with the new 2.4 material that replaces the 2.8 , To narrow a cone in the widths people want these days.
I think the move to eliminate the old was money spent in manufacturing the 2.8. Comparing the samples of old vs new 2.4 its easy to see its a cheaper made screen. Doesn,t mean thats bad in itself as the 2.4 is a good compromise overall.
It would be nice if they simply add the 2.8 and charge accordingly for their troubles instead of stopping production on it
I would like to have it back also as I,ve been looking for a wider version of the 2.8 I have used for a long time and might still get the new 2.4 if a big used 2.8 never surfaces
