Re: fine John but then the OP is not consistent with himself

You might be right. Maybe it just takes A LOT of learning to get good skin tones out of the D7000. A decent start is to use these settings I've found:

Contrast: 0
Brightness: -1
Saturation: 0
Hue: -1

But still the 3D come-alive-feeling of D70 and D200 is just not there. And I've tried Capture One (oversaturated and overdone), Aperture 3 (purple reds), Lightroom (Adobe Standard gives purple reds and the camera profiles are like Capture NX but slightly worse). And I still haven't found what I'm looking for.

Right now I'm starting to look out for either a used Fujifilm S5 Pro or a Nikon D200...

That the OP could have decided for constant 4800k whatever happens (and apparently refuse to ever do a WB preset again, when it is so easy to do on Nikons), and THEN complains he's not getting the colours he'd like - this strikes me as logically INconsistent.

Yes it does seem like he is saying, I will only use this particular crayon in the box, but the box of crayons is not giving me what I want.

I see something special in the D7000, and I think it will be like the D300, in that it will take a while to learn all the best settings. The capability seems to be there, but will the users have the patience and skill to learn to use it. Technically it is interesting in that it seems to be an approach that Nikon has not used before.
