I find both the /g and /t better integrated in the bottom sample.The /g and /o look lighter than the /n and /r, for example, though in the case of /g it might be a deliberate measure to avoid clumping.In both samples, the /ngra/ cluster is much more tightly spaced than /lated/.

It's all rather loose.

Here are the rest of the lower case itals:
I will also straighten the curve on the top of the /t, I find it distracting. Or at least make it much more subtle.
#2 is most beautiful
#3 my favorite
The /g and /o look lighter than the /n and /r, for example, though in the case of /g it might be a deliberate measure to avoid clumping.
In both samples, the /ngra/ cluster is much more tightly spaced than /lated/. Actually, I'm wondering whether the top /g would look more harmonious if it were just spaced a little wider.
There's still the problem of the gravity well sitting somewhere around the /g/r boundary that appears to be pulling the letters close and thinning out the outer regions.
I think the eye on the /e could be opened up a bit more on the "text" style since it will tend to vanish at smaller sizes with the weight you've added.
I like the italics! The /j might benefit from a big more backbone.
Yes, the Roman is a big on the wide side, but I see that as a design feature. I'd file it in the Mrs Eaves category.
