Photo Comparison of two iPod touches with different firmwares: http://www.flickr.com/photos/14321902@N05/sets/72157602213284398/ The pictures aren't awesome, but the comparison was what was important. There has definitely a very slight difference in contrast after the upgrade that I didn't notice beforehand. I'd say the most telling is the Jay-Z album cover, where the new firmware appears to have made it harder to make the image negative overall, though I forgot to test this beforehand. The album cover also looked nearly identical until I tilted the screen slightly. The new firmware definitely appears to give a broader viewing angle overall, but at what cost?
