The main difference seems to be the styling.

I found this which shows differences in the smaller size models (addtional ipod dock).

I also found this mentioned on a website

Panasonic Unveils V20, D25, and D28 HDTV Series

"The D28 and D25 series are very similar. In fact, the only significant difference is that the D28 offers ISFccc calibration and a few photo features."

For me the screens and picture quality are the same. The major difference in style are the colours and the fact the D28 is at angle when on it's stand instead of being straight.

I can guess what this colour calibration does but don't know how useful it is. I thought for photos both use vieracast and dnla so this seems a bit strange so I don't know if it's accurate.

This seems to confirm that the difference is only the styling and the pedestal. I'm guessing the picture features they were talking abiut were the "Photo Frame Design" :)
