framemd5 depends on FFmpeg selected pix_fmt for the output, and DPX 
16-bit default pix_fmt is rgb48 (rgb48le or rgb48be depending on the DPX 
endianess) vs FFV1 16-bit default pix_fmt is gbrp16le.
You need to force your framemd5 analysis to a common pix_fmt, add " 
-pix_fmt gbrp16le" for the DPX framemd5 or " -pix_fmt rgb48le" (or " 
-pix_fmt rgb48be" depending on the source DPX endianess) for the FFV1 
framemd5, and you'll find the same results (I tested on a DPX 16-bit BE 
converted to FFV1 and I get the same framemd5 whatever the pix_fmt 
selected for the final comparison, i.e. in both cases you lose no frame
