Well this can't be good, and it's exactly why I've been waiting for serious testers like yourself to test the camera. What's the practical implication of all this in your opinion. Is nikon likely to be able to fix this with firmware or anything? On the plus side the grain looks a little smaller than on the D5100.

I think they would have already fixed it in firmware if they could. The biggest problem with fixing this in post is that the color cast is not linear across the tonal range, ie it affects mostly the shadows, which makes global color correction difficult, outside the coarse shadow tinting control available in ACR/LR. Other raw processors may have more options to deal with this.

Exactly. This would be something that would be rather difficult for ACR/LR to reverse engineer, and in any case would result in a rather complex codec.
