I was trying to figure out why all the versions of the image posted above look so similar -- having only very small variations. And, it turns out, that dPreview, in making the small, medium, and large versions, convert them to sRGB regardless of the profile embedded in the original.

So everything you are viewing has been converted to sRGB. There is no way to run this test. Sorry about that.

But, I did learn from it that, if you're going to post on the web, you are better off processing the raw files right from the get-go for output in sRGB. This is something I have long suspected -- and halfway tested -- but not quite so fully. Bummer.
