As an observer of the different experiences here I can assure you studiorl, that something about your two cameras is different. At least, something is different about the way you describe your two cameras, compared to the way I and otheres are describing theirs. it is not unlikely at all for two cameras to have the same mfg defect, esp. if they are early in the product life cycle and come from the same production run.
It would be fascinating to compare performance using the EV standard that I refered to. I'm happy to re-construct my tests as well to compare notes. It should not be too difficult to create similar "enough" scenarios and compare results!
