Canon 5D Mark III Skin Tones a gold standard?

I suspect this may have been debated several times before but I couldn't find a direct answer.

I note that a lot of portrait photographers swear by the 5D Mark III.  What quality in the skin tones or color science drives such loyalty?  I would love to get some insight and understand what is the look which commands such confidence and fan following.

If you are responding to this and have pictorial examples alongside, that would be very much appreciated.
