Nikons CFA is better than Canon which shows in DXO measurements.

Not really. There is no way to measure what "better colors" are. Many people switch to Canon for "better colors".

The Canon CFA is thinner and off course there are ways to meassure color depth


that Canon has better colors are highly a subjective statement based on ignorance

Speaking about ignorance: color depth in a wrong color space would only appeal to Martians which have different color vision than ours. One of the reasons Nikon does better in that metric is the lower read noise, but we knew that. The color filters are different but what is better is highly subjective. The only way it can be measured is by experiments with people, asking them what they find better. Such experiments can be done in principle but I am not aware of any.

dont understand what you are trying to tell me, one of the reason Nikon does better is a a steeper, thicker color filter than Canon have and red does not go towards orange as one example
