Sure there's probably a bit of a difference, but frankly neither your or my eyes are good enough to notice :p
Well, I'm mostly focusing on the newer, effects-heavy movies for now (Iron Man, Star Trek, etc.), and the other ones I may never bother with, unless I see them dirt cheap. You're right, though. Your average drama or comedy doesn't gain much, if anything, from the conversion. But anytime from now on that I buy a movie I don't already have, it'll be on BD.
