K100D, Red, and Color Accuracy

I just bought a mint k100D from Ebay, and overall very happy with it. So much so, that I sold my SonyA700, also used, because it had a lot of trouble interpreting Reds and Greens in my images. The standard setting always yielded more orange than red. This resulted in my having to constantly tweak the settings to get red or close to it for red subjects By the time I made the camera adjustments, the kodak moment was gone.

I know that all digital cameras interpret colors as close to what their software allows. Some better than others. For me, I was on a budget.

In regard to the K100D, I noticed that on the standard setting, it interprets red almost 90-95% as close to what I am actually seeing in the viewfinder. Maybe even more. Just so I am not going crazy, would most of you who used this camera agree. that as far as color accuracy, the camera is pretty good without tweaking the settings?

Color accuracy depends on a multitude of things. Are you evaluating RAW or JPEG images? Is your monitor calibrated? What colorspace are you using?
