Check out the samples from both cameras.
|Quoting Dvincent (Reply 3):
A lot of what you perceive as color fidelity on a digital camera has to do with two things - the image processor you use (whether it be the camera's CPU and firmware or a RAW converter) and the bayer matrix array of color filters. These improve over time. The D80 will necessarily be better in this regard than, say, a D70 or D50.
Canon and Nikon both have different methods of doing this since they get their sensors from different suppliers (Canon fabs their own, while Nikon purchases them from Sony or has Sony fabricate them). The Minolta 7D and 5D (of which I use) were renowned for their color reproduction because Minolta used a different bayer filter array than Nikon did with the D70/D50 with the same Sony sensor. The other part of it was the image processing software used to create the camera JPEGs.
And even then, if you use a RAW converter, the processing side gets thrown out. However, programs like Adobe Camera RAW and Lightroom allow you to use a Gretag (now XRite) ColorChecker square chart to measure your colors under a specific light and calibrate your camera to them. So you can neutralize some of the oddities such as reds that are rendered too strong.
