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

I would love to see the DP2M put through tungsten next to a DP2 as a curiosity for this. But to be honest if that's what happened, I think I rather have better splotch-free daylight performance.

Yes, me to, on both accounts. I could live with a non tungsten camera. Even Bayer cameras are really not good at tungsten, and produce best yellowish images. If you try to compensate they normally look bad.

I wonder why they removed the AFE or why they thought the AFE would be better to begin with (or maybe it is- I never quite understood that- except that it seemed to band).

The main reason for AFE is the limited dynamic range of the A/D converter. There is some information down in the noise, even below the least significant bit.

But ... the Foveon chips has quite high noise and quite low DR (contrary to what many here claim). Then AFE might only introduce problems. A shhotout between a DP2s and DP2x would be interesting.

Anyhow, really hoping SPP monochrome allows good B&W into the high iso.

It should. B&W high ISO done normally is already better than color images from Foveon cameras.
