    Hey there chopper
    I just got in an xs yesterday and now I know what you are taking about.
    My old fa * 43 1.9 had "something about it" where as the new xs has "something missing"
    It seems sharp enough but after playing with the controls in photoshop I realized it lacks a lot of rich contrast.
    I am thinking it might be a lack of hood and lack of a deeper recess of the front optics.
    Have you ever tried to design a hood for it?

    How many Honda cx's do you own now?
    I keep wanting to go to PA with the Ottawa misfits but they are 5 hours away from me...then add the time to get to PA...well you can see what I mean

    Hope your summer has been great
