I am currently deciding what to do

  • Buy an SD1M with one good lens. Then I get an IR camera for free.
  • Buy a DP2M and a close up lens
  • Buy a DP3M, mainly due to its better close up capability
  • Buy no Sigma camera at all

Based on your previous form, Roland, you'll choose the last option. But, go ahead and surprise us all!

You are probably right

But - I can reveal that there is just one little tiny thing right now that is the main reason why I hesitate. Its the stripes. I have looked at a RAW file of an image with stripes, and the stripes in the "blue" layer are VERY strong. There is no stripes in any other layer. So - some elaborate stripe removal algorithm is needed, which I assume the newer SPP does. Thats strange, and not so fun.

This issue needs investigation.

And if my observation is true, and I cannot device any reliable fix, then I doubt I will buy any Merrill camera.

The biggest question is of course if this stripes problem varies between cameras. Maybe sensors with such strong stripes are broken, and should be returned.
