Nice colors!

How would you compare the color saturation compared to an equivalent 85mm modern FX lens?

The belief is that more lens elements equals deadens colors. With only 4 elements, the colors should pop more - yes?

If the lens elements had coatings made with pre-1970 tech, or no coatings at all, then yes. Nowadays there is vanishingly small loss of contrast (loss of color saturation goes hand in hand) in the majority of designs irrespective of the element count. Take a look at sample photos made with recent 70-200mm f/2.8 zooms for examples.
