I am no pro by far, but I see things posted about skin tones etc etc etc in many posts. I have a D300 (also oft complained about by some I have seen) and have no problem with accurate (and pleasing) skin tones, of many hues.

Color calibration is key as you note AND using a good RAW converter and choosing a good color profile (of course shoot RAW, why buy a $$$$$ DSLR and shoot JPEG? except for fast reporting of events for news editors etc?). And, I am still a relative newbie to this, so if I can figure it out...it is not hard.
