    Thanks for advise guys much appreciated, due to your comments I done some investigating and realized I had not removed the protective film from the holo wrap , normal wrap does not have this.

    Now it's been re wrapped with protective film off looks 10 times better.

    Seriously, I don't know how Def saw anything wrong. I can't squint hard enough to see anything off in the pics. All I see is jpeg artifacts.
