While this test shot is preliminary, it is indicative of my previous (subjective) experiences with Nikon skin rendering. Not that it can't be adjusted, but that it has to be adjusted to that degree in the first place.
What is a bit disconcerting is that this sample was done with clean light, and while it renders the details of the skin quite well as evidenced by the pores and blemishes @ 100%, the over-all feel lacks the luminance of skin ... (even taking into account heavy make-up, I doubt her arms are heavily made up). The general effect is like color was added afterward, which never looks quite real.
Oh well not my worry ... I have no plan to get one anyway.
