When I run the Nikon and Canon raw files through ACR, using Adobe Standard profile, White Balance 'As Shot', and all other settings at defaults, the resulting files when opened in Photoshop are remarkably similar in colour, tone and contrast. I see no evidence of the Nikon file being 'washed out' or lower contrast when compared to the Canon file.

The only significant difference between the files is that the Nikon, as expected, renders more detail than the Canon. This extra detail will be entirely lost when both files are downsized to two megapixels (1200 x 1800px).
