Re: Perfect skin tones

I have 2 x D40, a D200 (both CCD), a D5000 and D700 (both CMOS). In my experience, the CCD cameras out-perform the CMOS bodies for colour rendition and time saved in PP, for well lit scenes -- I very rarely go over ISO400 so noise is not a problem.

At the end of the day, you just have to get some hands-on experience and doing real-life comparisons before making a purchase.

A few links to the CCD-vs-CMOS debate:
