Re: Quick observation based on using presets

Huylss, two points I think are important. You're not using the cameras simultaneously, ie shooting what I call 'side by side' so that makes it hard to do an exact comparison. Your DP2Merrill shots are apparently from last year. DP3Merrill shots currently.

Second, the DP2Merrill shots you're showing are not using the current firmware.. or probably even the one before that. The latest is new, I haven't updated yet. I'm still using DP2Merrill on 1.02.

I recall someone posted a series of barn shots when the DP3Merrill first came out, which showed different basic colorations in the cameras. The DP3Merrill was browner I recall.

But what we don't know... and everyone is working to figure out.... is how the cameras compare NOW. Note Bob and Kendall and several other people have BOTH, in hand, and can compare them on site,  in different locations and light, studio and outdoors, and on-camera as well as in post processing.
My own feeling FWIW is that there are subtle differences in the cameras, BUT the wb settings and colormode settings and post processing make far more difference in the results than an inherent difference in the RAW. I haven't used the DP3M.... but I've seen such subtle differences in evey other camera I've used.
