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

Interesting take. Do you have a a particular link that explains this design choice? Thanks Roland.


I only have two "evidences" for this.

  1. The previous sensor was totally cr@p at tungsten. And looking at the raw data, the blue layer was almost empty, only noise. I have not heard about any complaints about tungsten performance for the Merrill sensor.
  2. The RAW data in the Merrill cameras has a strong blue tint, where the RAW data from the previous cameras was brownish. Note that the Merrill cameras dont have any AFE, so the bluish tint probably is a real artefact, and not due to some amplification.
