In this case yes. This is an issue of the new Foveon. I can only hope it's something sigma can figure out to suppress in a future version of SPP.

Ad this is Iso 100 and full spectrum light! This is why I have to shake my head at this point when people refer to Foveon as ultimate image quality for the "knowledgeable photographer. "

The previous sensor was optimised for daylight. It was VERY bad at tungsten.

In the Merrill sensor they made the blue layer thicker.

Its a kind of zero sum game. Improving tungsten, worsen daylight.

Interesting take. Do you have a a particular link that explains this design choice?  Thanks Roland.
