I found that there are more purple and green noise in the dark area of the images of the SD1m than that of the Sd14 when both in low ISO (ISO 100). Is the noise related to the Dynamic performance or is that just little purple fringes caused by lenses?

I think SD1m should have better dynamic performance than SD14, what do you think?

I own neither camera but, in theory, I would expect "cleaner" performance from the SD14 (all other things being equal) - based solely on pixel area and therefore well capacity. Pixel pitches are 7.8um and 4.9um so the SD14 has over twice the active area.

The discussion might be muddied by versions of SPP, default noise reduction, etc.

In my view, giving in to the Marketing Grail of ever-more MP's is a retrograde step, although I do recognize that some folks like to make large prints.
