Agree 100% on all that ! (image included)

In my experience most cameras tend to blow reds easily, and that includes the D800. For that reason I tend to dial in some negative exposure compensation when there is a lot of red in an image.

The camera that best handled reds was my Fuji S5Pro, it was quite amazing with that.

...and indeed underexposing -1 EV can help !

Although I had forgotten that my D800 was set to ISO 1600, I underexposed -1 EV and (despite the noise created by the high ISO), the reds are absolutely not cooked !
