    The Williams is a beautiful pair. I would own it if it was in another frame but it still has my vote.

    I agree about the Dispatch -- I love the detailing on this pair, although I'm not a fan of the frame itself. Also, I've been wondering this for a while now - maybe I'm just crazy but why do so many people love the Murasaki Holbrook? I mean, I think it's pretty cool but I feel like it's not anything special when compared to the other Holbrooks out there but people seem to go gaga over it. Am I missing something?

    What happened in 2008? I'm sort of a more recent collector; was it a particularly un-innnovative year or something?

    Between these two options the Robert Williams Dispatch wins for various reasons, namely: 24K better from an eye catching standpoint than Chrome lens, Dispatch a better model than the Holbrook in that it is more unique and easier to complete an entire set of, better box, better microbag, more interesting frame due to artwork, part of the artists series, more contents within the packaging. The Holbrook is more restricted in release distribution and rarer. Both are awesome and each is essential to the collector.

    tough choice. i love the 24k lens for sure, too bad i dissolved my artist series collection, and the dispatch doesn't suit me at all.
