Could a Downgrade be an Upgrade?

Here's a lunatic question.

I've read in many threads, but seen no real studies, that older Canons had stronger color filters that provided better color than newer sensors. Canon is said to have given up some color for better low light capability.

Half of my pictures are HDR brackets taken on a tripos at base ISO. (I know you hate HDR, but please bear with me) High ISO capability does nothing for me on such shots. I guess a camera with lower DR could require me to take a wider range of brackets closer together. So what?

Would I get more and better color from an old 5D classic or one of the 1D series cameras from that era than from a new camera, for that specific purpose?
