this is what I was referring to:

"Since the DP2 Merrill, the output out of the Merrill sensor has been enhanced, thus my calling it the "Merrill Unleashed". The DP3 Merrill's colors are more accurate (by far); the color modes do not work like older models leading to even more room to work your raw files and this, in addition to the new SIGMA PHOTO PRO capabilities."

I have both cameras, and think those claims are overstated.

In some similar shots from Iceland between the two cameras I can detect virtually no color difference.

Remember also that he is primarily concerned with skin color in portraits, where tiny differences can mean more.
