At least on my monitor, the DP2Merrill in several shots needs a touch of color adjusting. Please note that a RAW processed to JPEG is MUCH better with the DP2Merrill than in-cam JPEG... much better fine detail capture, more dynamic range to pull out I think.

Do some comparisons of Sigma to Sigma: in-cam JPEG to a a SPP processed JPEG. I think you'll be impressed. My personal 'test' scene is a family granite house, photographed from a certain distance. On a DP2Merrill processed RAW to JPEG I can see the fine speckles in the granite more clearly than with any camera I've ever shot there.
I truly think the DP2Merrill is much 'better' in fine detail capture and sharpness than my Canon 5DII and any of the (good) Canon lenses I have.

Very much agree with this. The DP2M is at its best when shooting raw. Then it becomes quite spectacular in terms of sharpness.

As part of my review of the camera I've got some comparisons, from raw, with an OM-D, NEX-7 and D800E with a download link to the full-size files - here - http://soundimageplus.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/sigma-dp2-merrill-review-and-user_7874.html

I also converted two SPP raw conversions from tiffs into .dng files which you can access here - http://soundimageplus.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/sigma-dp2-merrill-raw-dng-files.html

This means that you check out how the files look in terms of dynamic range, colour accuracy etc. without having to get hold of a copy of SPP. The tiffs were created using the X3F setting in SPP.
