Re: production dates and link: BobNL's white balance
In reply to vbd70, Mar 30, 2013

Vieri, minor point for the record. The DP2Merrill was produced and released first; I have an 'early' one purchased in August 2012. The DP1Merrill came out some significant time afterwards. And of course the DP3Merrill was released recently.
As to any production differences ('innards') among them, other than the lens, really no one outside of Sigma/Foveon knows.

I note too that your test was done with one white balance..... as to how they differ in auto white balance, that's another issue. BobNL's studies have shown that white balance is significant. I'll try to find and link his thread.

Here's the article, I'll try to find the dpreview thread too
