After two years of trying to get decent skin tones out of D700 ( and latterly a D90 ) I have final given up. I have tried every way to achieve good skin tone including expodiscs and grey cards. I have tried countless nuances of settings and wasted time and money tring to achieve good results.

ExpoDisc and grey cards are for white balance, not color calibration. What conversion software were you using? Did you try various camera profiles, or make one with a ColorChecker Passport and Adobe DNG Profile Editor?

I have now gone back to Canon with a D7 and a D600. EUREKA straight from the box excellent skin tones and accurate colours.

I will now have the time to take photographs and my family will not run screaming from the room when skin tones are mentioned!

Hmm, maybe you are just a family snapshooter with more money than photographic knowledge. It is good you found something you are happy with.
