there is nothing magical about the colours from any camera or lens combo

If by "magical" you mean pulling a white rabbit out of black hat, then yes. But in the meaning of this thread "magical" stands for "special", "lovely", "creamy", "pleasing". Surely colors are different for lenses. Zeiss is special. Leica has a famous "glow". Canon 70-200/4 with fluorite is lovely. No doubt colors produced by cameras are also different. Canon and Nikon are dramatically different. The colors of 5D have been praised by many for ages comparing favorably to both earlier and later models. Therefore your statement is not even wrong, it simply makes no logical sense other than your admission of personal lack of sensitivity or discretion. Thank you for your contribution to the thread.
