Sorry, do you mean that the older Sigmas have the same flatness or they don't?

With respect to on screen viewing, it's not a fair fight to compare Foveon and Bayer at 100%. Generally Bayer sensors have more pixels than equivalent generation Foveons and they need them too.  That means to get a fair representation you need to upsample the Foveon to the same size as Bayer and compare then. Alternatively you can downsample the Bayer although that risks throwiing away data.

Best of all is compare prints where you have a level playing field.

Seems to me the only level playing field would be to print out the images at 13x19 or larger.  Why should I upsize my perfectly fine raw image to suit another camera?  Why should I downsize my bayer image to suit another camera for comparison. Just print them out. Your eyes will see the difference.  This has been an ongoing argument since 2004 and its a tired one.

If you can stand the sophomoric humor of this video---at the end of it the D800E images are compared with the tiny DP2M printed out large.  Thats how you compare cameras.  This nonsense of upsizing and downsizing is absurd.  Just print out the images on the same size prints and have at it.
