This is a good example of why people were asking for examples because seeing the same image people see different things. What I see is an image of a young person with a smooth complexion, nothing waxy at all. You clearly perceive it differently.

I agree. I saw nothing there but a good photo and a kid with smooth skin!

You know, if you don't see it in this shot, you will be just fine and shouldn't have any worries for your portrait photography. Just keep noise reduction at -2 and use as low an iso as you can. I notice not a lot of people percieve the issue like I do.

And for the record, I love my Fuji's and have no problem leaving my Nikon kit at home on travels and such. Just for professional portrait work, I prefer my Nikon, as I percieve that to give a more natural look that I like more.
