King of color in Nikon DX, past or present?

Now I'm wondering what the nicest ever colors were for DX. I'm ignoring the fact that the old cameras don't look nice over iso 800. I'm talking about scenics mainly. Let's consider the color at base iso instead.

I used a D300/D200 pair for DX. The D200 didn't see much use somehow. Partly it was the extra difficulties shooting within its limits, and it needed substantial sharpening. But it had strong colors.

I never latched onto the D2X, I needed too much convincing it was better than the D200. Was it?

The D300/s I never formed a strong opinion on for the appeal of its colors. Even more wishy-washy seemed the D7000 that followed which was a slight step down in operation.

I've tried the very old Fuji pros, pleasant slightly aqua skies, the resolution or sharpness and the operation not so much.

The D500 I used too briefly to form an opinion.

I put a poll up for a bit of fun but the explanations might I think be more interesting.
