Green vignetting & typical green/magenta splotches

I have just compared Iridient Developer 2.0 with Sigma Photo Pro based
on two photos with winter scenes. The greyish colours in these two photos
revealed two major deficiencies of Iridient Developer:

  • the typical green vignetting/magenta center problem
    of the Foveon cameras seems to be completely uncorrected
    leading to unwanted colouring in greyish image content
  • the typical foveon green/magenta splotches are evident not only
    in dark regions but in neutral mid tones as well

Both of these problems are well under control in Sigma Photo Pro.

Additionally there is an image update problem, so that sometimes only
parts of the image are visible.

Thus in its current state Iridient Developer is unusable for me. Although
I applaud Iridient for supporting the Sigma Photo Pro, there is still a lot
of work to be done, before it can become a viable alternative for me.
