By the way, I am not trashing Nikon, or the D7000. The D7000 is overall, a wonderful piece of equipment and I would not go back to Canon. I am just saying that it is hard, under some fairly common lighting conditions to get good looking skin tones. Harder than it was with Canon. Just my personal experience.

And harder than with my old CCD olympus E1. I would not switch back either, there are so many things better about the D7000 but skin tones (no matter how I process them) and OOC jpegs in general aren't as good if both are used at base ISO. Obviously the E1 starts to fail at any ISO over about 200 as far as noise + the AF isn't as good etc etc. But the E1 did nail skin tones in all sorts of odd lighting + the OOC jpegs were so good it made shooting RAW almost pointless.
