Do your Foveon-based cameras generally have a green cast?

Talking about images with default settings in-camera and default adjustments in SPP.

Talking about all such Foveon-based cameras, except the SD14 which has a proven and well-discussed green cast.

In @Stillton's recent thread here it has been said:

"... The green cast of the Foveon is an inexcusable design fault, but it exists."

I'm asking for a simple yes or no to that all-encompassing statement and I exclude from this poll the SD14 which has a proven green cast.

Color reproduction is a vast and complex subject and there are many steps betwixt the Foveon sensor outputs and the human eye ... but still, discussion is invited.
