Pale "yellow" in K200d

Does anyone notice the yellow color from K200d is a bit pale? Shoot the banana and/or any deeper yellow color paper and compare them! I try to adjust parameters such as Hue and WB. It does turn the yellow a bit richer but not quite there. Also, if you twist those settings too much, it will affect something else.

Posting a sample image would help. Chances are the problem is a combination of three things:

1) camera trying to hard to *remove* the yellow color if you are using AWB or the tungsten preset - that is, after all, exactly what those mdoes are designed to do
2) the red and/or green channels clipping - basically, the yellow is overexposed
3) your monitor not being correctly cailbrated
