I've found SPP's defaults to be very aggressive for skin tones in general, no matter what tone or shade. Try playing around with the sharpening, noise reduction, white balance etc. Even with that, I've had to frequently apply negative clarity once I get images into Lightroom because there is just too much contrast and detail at times. That said, I've found you can get some pretty nice skin tones out of the DP Merrills if you put some care into how you process the files. The transitions between various tones can actually be quite beautiful. It definitely does take some more care than I've had to apply with my bayer-sensored cameras, but the results can be nice.
