Do you think the image of SD14(SD15/DP1/2) is cleaner than that of SD1m(DP1m/2m) ?

SD-1 is cleaner, but you need to expose differently

I was busy in Death Valley and missed your post originally.

In the older Foveon cameras, we tended to be able to bring up shadows a little more.

Where the Merrill sensors differ is that they have more DR than the older sensors (substantially more) but to get at it you need to over-expose a bit.  In that sort of white snow shot for example, you'd probably expose the SD-1 at +1.7.  Possibly even higher.

The the shadows would look fine.
