Colours are bright and vibrant straight from the camera. If you want to boost the contrast further for images that really pop, you might want to consider using the Velvia film simulation setting.

Here we can see that noise has been well controlled even when shooting at a high sensitivity setting such as ISO 3200.

This image was shot in a very dark environment, and the camera has struggled slightly more with the noise reduction at ISO 1600. However, it's still retained a good amount of detail and considering how minimal the light is, the fact that the camera has produced a useable picture at all is pretty impressive.
