Color accuracy has been reduced in the Canon with thinner CFA in each new model.
Color accuracy is therefore weaker around 5500K (day light)

Ah, yes, I knew it was coming. The "old camera is always better than the newer model" people are coming out of the shadows, but now it is that the 5D and 5D2 were better than the 5D3. Never fear, when the 5D15 comes out, there will be folks swearing up and down that that 5D14 produced altogether magical colors and was far and away the better camera.

It used to be that the 5D was better than the 5D2. Before that is was that 8 MP was better than 12MP. Before that there were those who were certain that 4MP was better than 6MP, and I actually recall folks extolling the wonderful virtues of 1MP cameras over those new fangled 2MP models.

And, wow, considering the continuous downward spiral in the quality of cameras that must be happening each time a new model comes out, if five or ten years camera will be just plain unusable...
