the Sigma DPx Merrill cameras, I decided to make a small comparison:

Thanx for your test. Its revealing. It shows very clearly that the old red spots problem is very evident in the Merrill DP cameras. It also show, surprisingly, that the wider the FOV, the less the problem. As far as I know, its the other way around for the pre Merrill cameras.

I assume the lack of such images in this forum is due to DP Merrill owners either avoiding taking such images or avoiding showing them to the forum, wise from earlier discussions of DP camera flaws.

The latter would be a pity. I.e. if DP Merrill owners chooses to hide (?) the flaws. Knowing about the flaws is very important if you are considering buying something.
