I moved to a Nikon D90 because it produced healthy looking white persons skin (when compared to the pale looking skin my Canon produced) without the need for processing.

I am now going to move to a 24mp body, but need to keep the size and weight to that associated with the DX range. However, I have noticed that the D7100 produces a more dead colour in the beige-tan colour ranges and therefore presume that the D5200 would be a better choice (from the perspective of how healthy my subjects would look).

Can anyone confirm that I am on the right track or offer a link to sample images of Caucasian/white people for Nikons?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

first do you shoot RAW or JPEG. The two cameras are setup difficulty out of the box regards camera defaults so that is a player. The RAW shooter has great latitude regards shin color/tone so for those folks...not a big issue either camera. The Jpeg only shooter is more limited but Custom Picture Control utilities (they are free and come with Nikon software) allow for flexibility as well (saturation/Hue settings), just a bit more work on the front side involved. You can customize Pic Controls in camera as well. Good Luck
