I'll be keeping an eye out for the two week drop.
Do you know if the two week drop coincided with a known Panda update, or just happened on a regular day?
Google seems to have forgotten the old pages as soon as it settled on the 301s to the new pages, though I haven't gone plumbing for them with exact quotes. I'll keep an eye on that.
But I did just noticed the main moved page is back to #1 in Google for a very competitive two word phrase. It never could have ranked there based on just content, so Google is clearly applying the old link juice.
And I forgot to mention that the pages moved from a fifteen year old site to a three year old site.
Also, I did a bunch of searches on Google Japan, which seems to run current data minus Panda, and the results are pretty damn close for the pages I moved.
