Thank you. I suspect I have some sample variation in the camera. One of them. One day I'll get either a color checker of some sort and do a bit of testing.
Or... I wonder how meaningful it would be to shoot a monitor with a specific color pattern on it, then load both images and see if they come out at the same color pattern. If I get far enough away that I don't see the rgb pixels, that might be interesting. Maybe this isn't about the AWB calculation so much as different color or intensity responses of the sensor?
This is more curiosity than a real problem I need to solve. It's not far enough off to really be sure which camera is wrong anyway. Though I did some soccer shots the other day for daylight, mostly D4, and they really seemed too cold. So I'm starting to think the D4 may be the culprit (if there is a culprit -- I could simply have two cameras from opposite ends of the bell curve).
