I am very interested in Sigma's Foveon technology for the type of images I take ( I added a sample for your better evaluation). I am particularly interested in high acuity, sharpness and excellent color discrimination in red/magenta and yellow/orange colours. Use of images would be either projected with high contract projectors or printed at book/magazine sizes. I would greatly appreciate to hear from your experiences which camera is best for this type of image: SD1 Merrill or SD Quattro (H)? Thanks a lot in advance!

Is that a real person's teeth?!?

They look spectacular! Specimen quality teeth right there. Is that a kid or an adult?

Yes Scott, a young adult female!

Oh, and I suggest the SD Quattro H, because you can shoot with live-view, rather than trying to look through a viewfinder. Then again, a right-angle viewfinder attachment with magnifier might work out just fine with an SD1 Merrill too. The SD Quattro H will allow you to review your result more quickly though, and if you reduce sharpening all the way, and shoot in Portrait mode, you'll have a great out-of-camera result.

Interesting. Any special reason for these requirements (portrait mode + less sharpening)?

BTW, I suggest the new 70mm f2.8 Art. It will work with the SD Quattro H, and I believe it's even better than the 70mm f2.8 EX macro, which I have and love (and use it on both cameras - SD1 Merrill and SD Quattro H).

Yes, I have read a lot of good stuff about it!

Good luck!

Thanks a lot! Cheers!
