I can see a slight difference on the iMac now, but only on the zoomed in pics. Definitely a little murkier on the Premiere version. But I don't see any text. I find that Apple tends to soften the edges of text in it's h264 implementation.

I also see in his article he's sticking with 2 pass VBR. When doing DVDs, 2 pass VBR is usually optimized for making small files, so not what you want to use to compare with set bit rates. One app might be more conservative than the other, and think certain frames don't need as much data as others. Obviously VBR let premiere down on this test, but perhaps would win on high contrast sharp imagery where compressor/fcpx seems to soften just a bit no matter what you do.
