D7100 skin tones
May 4, 2013

I had never thought that skin tones would bother me with Nikon cameras, until I got D7000. Now, D7100 came along, and my hope was that given it is a Toshiba sensor and not Sony, perhaps I would see the same or similar tones I was used to in D300 and D700, plus I heard on this forum that D7100 has improved color over D7000. So, I decided to spend a few minutes browsing through flickr looking at D7100 samples. At this time I've concluded that sensor probably has nothing to do with the skin tones, since I really see very little difference between D7000 and D7100 in this department, and frankly, I don't like all the orange I see. To me personally this issue trumps many other complaints I heard about D7100, because I mainly shoot people, not birds, and I think D7100 does rather well with birds as far as color goes. What's more, I'm concerned that these present skin tones will make me buy and re-buy D300 and D700 for as long as the used ones could be found, because this present color palette may stay with Nikon for who knows how long. In any event, please judge for yourself, in all kinds of lighting, random flickr samples:
