Is DP3M better than DP2M ?

There have been some saying that DP3M is rather different to DP2M regarding colors. And maybe also other things. That DP3M is a much better camera.

So ... that s interesting ... if true.

What do we have for kind of evidence for this?

If so, it would be interesting to know whether it is software or hardware related.  Is there camera software that cannot be updated via firmware updates perhaps?

it does not matter

I do not think difference would be substantial and that ANYONE should choose one over the other based on that . the ONLY important factor is the different Focal length

choose whichever one has the focal length that works best for you

I think the better color is really only due to the SPP update.  I would have to say that it produces better color in my experience.
