I just got up to Level 5 of the "Nothing Rhymes With Orange..." challenge by just playing the first two playthroughs normally. Got 5 oranges from loot midgets in TVHM, including 3 from the infamous room in WEP. Got a bonus package in both playthroughs, then went to farm one at lvl 50 and got one the first time, but it was rubberized, so I tried again and got a longbow sticky 2 runs later.
Compare this to like, 5 total in 8 previous playthroughs.
A chubby stalker dropped an explosive Bunny for me in UVHM the other day, then Scorch gave up a level 60 Hellfire after 8 tries or so. And today I found a level 14 Sticky Fire Leech grenade mod in the vending machine in Marcus' store, while playing my level 19 assassin.
I don't think that last one really counts, but it's the first legendary I've seen in a vending machine.
Cool story bro!

I don't know about enemy drop rates, but chests have been much better to me lately. Just now, I got a Sawbar (pearl!) and a Deliverance in one run at the Leviathan treasure chamber. In a few previous runs, I got a Rolling Thunder, two Invaders, a White Death, and Sledge's Shotgun. Two weeks ago, I got maybe one orange out of every six or seven runs. Now I'm seeing one in nearly every run.
I got a Hellfire from Scorch(first try), an Emperor from a LLM and a Maggie from a chest just a couple days ago, and I've found maybe three Legendaries in my entire play-time pre-UVHM. So yeah, I'd say they've improved. That, or "random is random".
