any one of you guys noticed color difference between VF and back screen, the VF is more greenish and cooler and the back screen is wormer, I tried the Screen and Viewfinder Color Tone and the Fine-Tuning Viewfinder Color Tone in the set menu, the VF is more accurate so no need to fine tune but you can't fine tune the back screen which it is the less accurate.

My R5 is very close, my R was not. I suspect that canon can adjust the colors using their equipment, ask them about it if its causing a problem.

One other crazy thought. I use a single eye on the VF but both on the back screen. This and ambient lighting could affect the colors we see. And, in those of us with some grey hair, it is possible that things like an early cataract in one eye could affect the VF monocular color as well. So I don't pay strict attention to the color while shooting the way I do in post processing

Another thought is that the OP is one of those who have superb ability to distinguish color differences. Some have that ability and see the difference in things that look the same to my old eyes. As I said, on my EOS R, I noticed the viewfinder had different colors, the LCD was best. External lighting can have a big effect for sure.
