As I'm not that happy with my current DSLR and the stocks of slide filmes are running out, I'm looking for a digital alternative. I'm interessted in a camera which offers great out of the box skin tones. I know that a lot of things can be tweeked in post. But I'm interessted in getting it right out of the box. Thomas

I'm sorry, but that is probably never going to happen. No camera is going to produce the exact result you want straight out of the box all of the time. There is no free lunch. I suggest setting up a preset in Lightroom or whatever you are using that applies a basic correction to get you in the ballpark of the look you desire.

Even in the slide films days you were at the mercy of the printing lights set on the developing machine or the idiosyncrasies of your scanner and its software.
