Real-world samples: Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm F2.8-4E ED VR

Yes, there’s probably a shrub or tree next to her, but nevertheless when there’s even a hint of green in a skintone Nikons seem to pop it more strongly than Canons in a way that drives me nuts. But I’ve developed a work around that seems to handle it.

And as for the sunset shots on the Sigma 24-35, those extremely warm skin tones look natural because the viewer can see the color of the light behind them; the eye is used to that situation. So no it doesn’t bother me.

And finally, when shooting jpgs if i’m not using a custom white balance, I find I have to dial in about a half a unit of amber and a half of magenta to get skin tones looking decent.

But that’s just the way my rods and cones are calibrated, as always YMMV.
