Michael,

You wrote, β€œI'm usually after accurate color reproduction rather than some film look.” You’re getting close to the dangerous swamp of perceptual philosophy, or pseudo-philosophy, here. A ray of light may be objective in space, but it becomes subjective when it enters the retina and stimulates the brain. It’s the old dorm room bull session question: β€œHow do we know that my blue is your blue?” Damned if I know. BTW, I do know this much: my left eye β€œsees”much warmer colors than my right eye does. Which πŸ‘, if either, is seeing the ”accurate” RGB?

(Extra credit question: Do your πŸ‘ πŸ‘ also vary in white balance, or are mine just bizarre?)

Snap! My left eye sees much warmer colours than my right. A lot of people I have mentioned this to have difficulty understanding what I'm on about.

Same here. Either their eyes are perfectly, or at least evenly, white balanced, or they just don’t understand the concept, or they’re gaslighting me.

Here’s the dilemma: I frame a shot in the EVF with my right eye, but I view and post-process the result with both eyes. Black and white, here I come.
