that's a strange conclusion... if the purpose of his tests was to show that different cameras, with different lenses (different T-stops), w/o a guarantee of the same processing by a proprietary raw converter, under not stable and uneven illumination will most probably give you different results in your workflow then yes... it is kind of obvious...
- Same processing, same proprietary RAW converter software (SPP), same general settings, same WB / colour wheel settings, etc both in the converter and in all cameras;
- Same light, stable and even, same flash position, same power (in manual);
- Same cameras in all respects except for the lenses (according to the manufacturer);
- Same exposure, same f stop, same shutter speed;
- Same relative magnification of test charts;
Pretty controlled. Pretty reliable conditions in order to determine whether the 3 Merrill cameras do or do not process colours differently, which was the purpose of the test. Testing differences in colour response between cameras, following contrasting claims on the net from people saying the DP3M processed colours differently than the DP1M/DP2M versus others saying that the colour response was identical between all the DP Merrill. No absolute colour response test here.
You don't like the test methodology and the test results? Fair enough, believe me I don't care much either way; however, if you feel strongly about it, you are welcome to design a better test and prove my results wrong. Please provide us with a link to such test once done. Until then, I'll not go into further baseless polemics with you.
