I think the thing for me is that you can tone down what the Merrill does in post, but you can never really replicate it coming the other way. I've seen plenty try but never quite manage it, that's why the three Merrills are unique cameras IMHO and why I'll shoot with them until Sigma reproduce what they can do in faster, newer, bodies, which may be never. I get what the Quattro can do, and I can see the appeal for some, it's just not the same for me.

It goes actually both ways. Too little local contrast might erase information that you cannot get back. Too much local contrast creates texture that might be hard to reduce without destroying detail.

I can't say I've had any problem toning down shots from the Merrills, Nik Color Efex and other Nik tools do a great job of giving me pretty much any look I want.
