X-T20 & 35mm f/1.4.

I have found that my Fujifilm gear reproduces the colours of red/red-ish flowers much better than my Pentax gear does.

Kinda like those greens... As well ... close to leica or nikon green,
One thing i’ve noticed about leica colors... And always liked ... green.

Fuji colors — sorta different than pentax .... And less control (in jpeg anyway) , with fuji it seems.

Am i way off on that ?

I don't know about modern Pentax cams, but I find the difference to be darker, less pink reds on Fujifilm gear. Especially on the X-E1. I think you have demonstrated that quite well.

Jonathan, do you talk about camjpegs or RAWs?

Dealing with RAW files, I myself dislike how Fuji (the same X-T20) represents oranges (+ red-oranges and yellow-oranges), K-1 is much better there. I've tried C1 12 for Fuji, C1 10 after Iridient X processing and Lightroom, don't quite like the result in all cases.

Though with K-1 reds in RAWs I need to adjust red channel to get the reds which really were there.

Not sure about there being less control.

I so rarely need to use the RAWs from my Fujifilm cameras as the jpegs are so good, but I've never noticed a problem with any colours. I imagine the jpeg engine on the K-1 is somewhat updated from that on the K-3, but the red channel does seem to saturate faster than the green and blue ones and I understand that's a problem for many digital cameras.

Reds , always seem to be off , in every Digital camera i’ve had .... Especially pentax reds ... i’d much rather shoot jpegs anyway , and not deal with too much processing myself , though understand its value ...

Fuji seems to get colors right . But i rarely try to shoot reds .... Just because they were all so off on other cameras ........

My two cents ....

Aha, thanks! Seems like I need to give Fuji camjpegs a second chance (at least with sunsets and these kind of things).
