Potential issue with Canon 80D color saturation in LightRoom 6.5

I've just upgraded to LR6.5, which includes support for the newly announced Canon 80D camera.


downloaded sample RAW files from The Imaging Resource (IR) in order to
compare the image quality of the 80D vs its predecessor, the 70D.



I loaded the files in LR6.5, I've noticed that some colors (orange in
particular) appear less saturated on the 80D vs the 70D - for adjusted
white balance (WB) and identical other 'develop' settings.

Does anybody have insights as to what might be causing this difference is color saturation?

Could this be a bug in the handling of the 80D camera profile?

Checked with the team here. Here is the response: The profile for the 80D is correct. The 70D profile was done with a different table (old way) but 80D, 1Dx Mark II, new rebel all look similar and are correct. So this is expected.
