It seems like we're pretty much all in agreement on this.
Things like being able to see Ford's reflection in the glass, Belloq eating the fly, or camera equipment visible in a shot- all add character to a film.
It's nice to know a film so well you can spot all of its secrets. It doesn't take you out of the film, it makes it more personal.
Have Lucas and Spielberg completely lost touch with what it means to be a fan?
Do they watch the films that inspired Raiders and wish someone would digitally 'improve' the effects?
Misguided efforts like this not only result in the end product coming across as sterile, it also fails to achieve lasting results. Look at how dated the cutting-edge 'improvements' in the SW:Special Editions are after just a few short years.
