Loving how sharp and detailed every pics posted here of the DP1M/DP2M are looking. Am conflicted about getting a DP2M. The one problem is that I really dislike the Sigma colors. Yellow and orange will seem fluorescent while most pics seem to have that murky 1970/s film look to them. None of the colors seem very nice, and all of the colors seem off.

Question: does the new update of SPP considerably improve to color output? Can SPP be tweaked to make colors more true-to life? Or, do you guys export a TIFF to Adobe and use a color profile to get things right?

This is NOT a troll about Sigmas color. Please, no chestbeating flames stating "Sigma's color is perfect."

Do you find any of these images have issues:

I present these not in challenge, but as an example of many photos taken using neutral color mode with auto white balance.  Other people like to process images differently, with stronger colors that might alter the look of colors to some degree - but mine are examples of what you could get with those color settings.

It seems like there is some setting that would result in images you would like.
