The one who say that skin tones out of the DP2m are good is just blind and never worked with any pro agency or professional models such as Elite or Ford or IMG.

I doubt any PRO would use such limited camera for pro work.

Compared to most modern DSLRs, medium format digital backs are quite limited also.

Do you doubt pros use them?

Pros are pros because they use cameras as tools, and as such can do a good job without the crutches that others require from camera equipment.

Model shots are absolutely a place where a pro could use a Foveon based camera.  It part that is because of the more constant treatment of colors in a scene.  But also because it does a fantastic job rendering clothing.
