lol, there is a uniform colour for grass? You have a preconceived idea of how the grass colour should be is all that you're telling me, even the time of day and time of year and which latitude your are at will affect the light and change the hue of the grass, of course i see a difference, but to say the E-1 grass colour is better because i know what colour that grass should be in the picture is simply hilarious

I have colour discernment, but is either better than the other? do i have no interest in colour because i like the D200, you like the E-1 colour and therefore and full of colour discernment? These are subjective matters unless you'd like to prove these statements with cold hard facts.

What I find comical is the grass color has to be 100% accurate

I have already argued that the E1 colour is not scientifically accurate. It only looks accurate. There is a huge difference.

(can't have grass looking too nice) but "olympus blue sky" is preferred, even though the sky looked a lot more like the nikon shot. I'm not sure I have ever seen a real sky the color olympus renders them but they do look pretty.

BTW we have had a LOT of rain and that lawn is -really- green this year

i always hear how Nikon grass is fluorescent, i was in Thailand with the E-1 ages ago and took some shots of cross billed storks in a rice paddy, the green was utterly intense and looked fake because of it, the E-1 has great colour i do agree with that, but i don't think it's a unique thing amongst cameras.

Obviously not to you. Nothing wrong with that. But that doesn't mean that others can't see it.

And I don't mean this to be some kind of "colour ability contest". However, I really don't see how people who can't see the difference feels they have the right to lecture those who can demonstrate (ie. picking out the E1 files and saying why) that they can see the difference.
