Quoting from the MR review again

Sigma made things problematic until recently by claiming that their sensor was 46 Megapixels. Yes, it is, but not when compared to a Bayer. With this new generation of cameras though Sigma needs to be given credit for, for the first time in their promotional literature, instead of just boldly stating 46MP, _*the (sic) say that this sensor is* equivalent **to a 30 Megapixel Bayer**.
-ibid. (Emphasis added again.)

The current sensor has 15 megapixels, with each pixel being a triplet. It's not 46 megapixels, nor is it 30 megapixels. The patents explain all.

Calling it anything other than 15 mp is deceptive.

Unless MR is misquoting Sigma, it is Sigma themselves that state that the SD sensor is equivalent to a 30 Megapixel Bayer sensor.

Which is at best, subjective.

(Which is 10 megapixels more than my 6D.)

Except that your 6D has real pixels, not an 'equivalent.'
