All cameras have shadow issues.

It's great until a person enters the picture in shade. Skin tones look horrific & ghostly. Here are some example screen captures from photos by rattymouse in Suzhou:

That's why I shoot +0.7 exp, because that issue goes away.

But also it's a fantasy that other cameras do not have shadow issues, as witnessed by the horrible shadow color noise in a Canon 5D Mk III and the grainy shadow of a D800 in this post:

At least the DP-2M maintains detail, which has always been the greatest strength... in any image with people in shadow you simply are not going to be looking at them very closely unless they are a point of focus.
