Sigma DP1 Merrill vs Nikon D600 Resolution Comparison

Can the 14.25-megapixel Sigma DP1 Merrill compete with the 24-megapixel Nikon D600 in terms of image quality, particularly resolved image detail?

Sigma DP1 Merrill

To my review of the Sigma DP1 Merrill in Guide to Mirrorless (ALLVIEW) I’ve added a resolution comparison between the Sigma DP1 Merrill and the Nikon D600. The comparison pays special attention to detail as well as color aliasing.

I show one very large actual (native) pixels crop from each, along with the entire frame along with a variety of resampled-to-match crops so that the two cameras can go head to head.
