That's because that was the model that Nikon went from CCD to CMOS. I went from a D50 to a D300. The D300 is a major step up in every way. Colors can be tweaked via an in camera profile or if shooting RAW in your processor of choice.Tried the D300 and it was no step up from the legendary D200. More so, it marked the start of the adoption of the previously much derided "Canon Colours" by Nikon.
I'm honestly surprised you liked/purchased the D500/D850, given their "bulk". It seems you've gone against your own mantra.
I think your perceptions and notions are a bit over blown/unrealistic, to be honest, and I don't see any further need to continue here.
