Is it just me or does Nikon have a tendency to overcook the red color?!

It's not Nikon, reds are tough on most digital cameras. If you have a red object and need to keep the detail, you have to underexpose for the red channel (which often intoduces noise, unfortunately). It's just the nature of things. Use your histogram and shoot RAW!

I really think it is Nikon. I hate to bring up the competition but Canon doesn't have this problem when I compare side by side. I used to own a D5000 and a 30D. The 30D managed to keep the reds under control.

Maybe it's the Sony sensor in the Nikons? I don't know.
