Thanks for the link. I've read that review.

Have you read their methodology? Its very amateurish... I mean, sRGB for a start?

Yup. Actually, I don't "believe" in this kind of proofs when it comes to color, but it is fun posting this to find out how aware the readers are about color.

Well... the problem is that some inexperienced readers might actually believe it means something

This is, at best, is a very technical analysis. It is not real world. One does not judge colour by randomly weighting deviation from a reference colour! That is not what a photo looks like

Real world is much "I like" or "I don't like", then excluding factors like screen or printer, calibration, etc.

Real world for most is working to instructions. He (she) who pays the piper calls the tune Of course, in weddings, freelance portraiture there is more flexibility.

Interestingly, the highest placed Canon camera ranked fifth. Yet more pros shoot Canon than the rest combined!

My guess is that many use Canon for other reasons than just "color".

True. But the final result is still an image and if the client isn't happy or the image doesn't sell...

Of course, half the world's pros and all their customers and agencies wouldn't have a clue would they?

Maybe they understand what many amateurs do overlook: A picture is not reality. It is a representation. And it is interpreted as a separate, independent object.

They understand an image is a means to make a living

This is also why "true colors" are meaningless, unless you talk about a reproduction that is viewed under a strictly controlled environment.

Absolutely. Colour is dependent on the final viewing medium. That is why advanced cameras offer so much control.
