A few other things going on...

I downloaded your images, thanks to the YouSendIt links.

While there still is a much stronger difference between your SD-1 and DP-2M than I am getting from my images, there are a few other factors at play:

1) Exposure.  Your DP-2M image is strongly overexposed, the SD-1 image not very much.  The DP-2M image can be recovered fully or so the histogram says, but it might be affecting the color.

2) Time of day.  The quality of the light between the two shots is really different - the DP-2M at high noon, the SD-1 in the morning with very orange light (which may be contributing to the slide color).

I think the thing to do for a better evaluation is, go take two pictures without about the same settings at the same time of the same subjects and see how different those look...
