The claim has always been that other cameras could shoot perfectly good JPG files.

That's odd - I don't recall anyone claiming that in-camera JPGs are perfectly good for pixel peeping.  I think we need a wikipedia style [Citation needed] on this claim.

So I guess that's not really true and Canon JPG files are no better than Foveon JPG files...

Canon's processing positively mutilates low contrast red detail.  Foveon in-camera processing positively mutilates high ISO.   You should compare how you shoot: OOC jpeg to OOC jpeg or raw to raw.

Or possibly focus was an issue; we know that Nikon has really good AF but overlooked is that Sigma may well have passed some other companies in AF performance (in terms of accuracy anyway).

That would be a tad more convincing if the OP had used the 5DII live view CDAF.
