I'm not understanding your statement. Are you commenting on color accuracy or color appeal? Unless you were actually there in person, how do you know the skin tones match reality? If you are referring to appealing skin tones, why can't you tailor your post-processing workflow to output whatever skin tones you prefer, regardless of the type of sensor. Sure, there may be slight differences between Nikon models but Nikon generally stays very consistent to it's particular palette of colors.

The distinction in skin tones that is often made of CCD vs CMOS reminds me of people who mistakenly spot CG created animals or effects in movies when in fact the animal or scene was shot live for real without the use of computers.
