Tariq, I guess we are all different. I look at those comparison crops, and on the D800 shots I see nice, relaxed details, and on the DP1M shots I see a glitchy, artifacty mess which would drive me nuts. It doesn't look like foliage, but a lo-res rendering of foliage, to me.
For each his own, however.
Yes, I do see issues with the DP1M versions and originally posted this comparison in a sigma thread to show how, with certain scenes, there is a sort of "cut-off" effect with fine gradation in the shadows. That said, the detail is there and the examples above it - to me - show really nice, sharp images and rendering of fine detail. I also think folks have become accustomed to seeing the mushy effect of what a bayer sensor looks like with such subjects (grass, foliage, fine twigs) which also comes into play when looking at foveon images of fine detail.
