I'd be happy to discuss why I think KR's "green shift" comment is irrelevant and misleading, but I came into this tread wanting to clarify a comment (that seems to have been edited away) that this issue also existed on D800. I did so (I believe) with complete civility, and frankly feel my comment was met with nothing but snarky arguments. If the goal here is to simply argue about camera equipment, then I'll let you have at it. If there's some interest in discussing photography issues, then possibly I can help.

I can promise you one thing, that because Mr. Rockwell said the camera has a green shift, we'll be dealing for months or years here with inexperienced users who crank up their saturation settings at his recommendation, take a picture of a field of grass, then come complain here that it's too green. Or they'll follow his AWB+M1 setting and complain here that all their pictures are purple, not realizing that's what M1+massive saturation does. I've been helping solve these kind of problems here for over 6 years, since the D70 and D50 days. You may feel there's an unreasonable backlash against stuff said on that site, but trust me, it's a build-up of years and years of experience dealing with beginners who take his stuff as gospel, without realizing that a lot of it is there simply to create controversy.
