Color temperature and saturation differences between the two cameras

I'm trying to decide between the SX40 and SX50 cameras. One worry I have when it comes to the SX50 when looking at sample photos and videos, is that there seems to be a color temperature difference between the two cameras. The SX50 seems somewhat crisper, but at the expense of saturation and with a loss of some of the warmth in the color spectrum. Oftentimes violets and even pinks will appear cool. I compare the effect to when I darken photos a bit in post-processing, and it then appears that I've laid gray filter over the top of the photo.

I would hope that the SX50's colors could be brightened and made warmer using the camera's white balance and other settings, but I know from experience that sometimes this kind of thing can't be rectified. If the overall color range isn't there to begin with, it can't be eked out and brought into existence

What do you think about this?
