Comments about resolution do confuse me a bit. I mean CV1 has 25% more pixels than dk2, yet some people basically same "naaa it's basically the same, you can't tell a difference". A 25% increase sounds worthwhile to me, if there had been an option when the dk2 was sold for a higher res version with 25% more pixels I'm pretty sure we would all have bought that one. If my car had 25% more power, I'd sure take that and I know I wouldn't be disappointed and say well its basically the same as before, no difference!
I know we all wanted higher res but lets not forget an increase of 25% is still worthwhile and defiantly better than dk2.
25% whilst it is an improvement, what improvement you see will depend on the Field of View. If they have made the field of View bigger, and the only way of doing that is with the lenses, then you are applying more magnification, and so are magnifying the pixels more lowering the 25% improvement.
With your Car theory above, imagine a bit of dirt on your windscreen that you are looking out, you can see so much sitting in the driver seat. To see more out of the front window, you move closer, and whilst yes you can see more out of the windscreen, that bit of dirt (The Pixel) just got bigger to.
The consumer rift is probably full RGB, which means that the actual number of subpixels is increased by about 80% over the DK2. And even with the same number of subpixels, full RGB handles small details a lot better than pentile.
