Re: Yes it does,

I agree with what your saying, no problems there. But I do profile my cameras and I can't get them to match. I use a color checker passport and Adobe Editor to make profiles for my camera. I can get close with my D300's and my D600, but not my D70. That's the odd ball. Hey I could be doing it wrong, but I make allĀ  my profiles using the same lens, lighting and settings. So if one is wrong they all should be wrong evenly. Yes I can tweak my images to match, but PP many images from different NikonĀ  models can be time consuming. I prefer quick an easy.

I agree with everything you saying and when I shoot an event with funky changing colors I use auto WB. To difficult to keep up with. I'm also shoot weddings and use two cameras, in the end all my images end up in the same folder and I want them to look the same. If I only use one camera, then it's no big deal. But when I use two, then it can be a problem. That's why I have 2 D300's.

For weddings, well, yes, it's good to have a match. But even then, if you are not using flash, lighting from church or windows or even outdoors will depend a lot on lighting. For example, you have bride and groom face to face, big moment. Only that lighting coming from left is different from that coming from right. And then they move around. One is very light caucasian and the other mediterrenean in their skin complexion. Results will vary and again I fing it very hard to believe, in general, that such small camera color differences will be more relevant than lighting.

Re your comment that Nikon colors are not good enough, I still doubt that, profiling the cameras will likely produce very very close results for all brands. For a while people were very critical about D7000's colors for skintones, once I worked a little bit with conversion settings and WB I never had issues, but, caveat, I'm not a pro or a wedding shooter, so likely my exp is not up to yours or other people's here lie Eduardo.
