Is it perhaps that most high end portrait shots we see, are often very much touched up giving a false impression of flawless complexions , when alas reality is much harsher . I am often baffled when extremely high mp cameras such as the 100mp Fuji are touted for their portrait abilities .

The combination of razor sharp lenses on highly detailed sensors viewed at often extreme levels in post. Does few faces a favour

Medium format sensors are valued by fashion photographers more for the details, color rendering and that medium format "look" you get, not so much the sharpness. Most every portrait shooter wants sharp lenses though, which is why most of us shoot primes. Its much easier to soften a sharp photo than to sharpen a soft photo.

Out of curiosity show us a really good head shot with what you call great skin tones.
