Foveon vs. 5D3 part 2.
2 months ago

My other thread is about to fill up. Here's another quick test.

Sigma DP2 Merrill:

1/400, f/5.6, ISO 100. Converted in SPP at all defaults to 16-bit TIFF. Imported into LR and given Auto White Balance, 0 sharpening.

Sigma

Canon 5D3 + 24-70L:

1/160, f/9.0, ISO 100. Converted in DPP at all defaults, Sharpness slider at 5, DLO on at 50%, to 16-bit TIFF. Imported into LR and given Auto White Balance, 0 sharpening.

Canon

I'd say several areas of the image are a tie, but the Sigma pulls ahead in some areas, especially the cedar shingles and the orange flowers.
