Hi Des,

the on-line manual of Mathematica for ColorFunction explains:

The arguments provided for the function specified by ColorFunction are
always in the range 0 to 1. 

Thus there is another linear transformation of the z-values before
colorFun gets them.
Things work correctly, but are poorly documented (?ColorFunction does
not give this
piece of information.)

Greetings

Martin
