So today i started using cycles for my blender projects, this time i made a quick model (took a picture of a acalculator ans just projected it on a medium detailed model).
created a glossy material and used the same image(colmap) for spec and displace.
i used only a single environment map, no additional lamps were used.
so i think cycles rocks quite good, rendertime ca 15 min. (720p /gtx470)
a making of will be uploaded soon on my new blog:
