645Z Good for Skin tones

I had the 645D was good but too slow to process . Anyone use the Z for portraits and if so which lens is good to get skin tones. Thanks
Max ISO before noise?

Are you shooting straight-out-of-camera JPEG, or raw?

Given the level of body you were and are considering using, I'd heartily recommend you shoot raw and use a good raw converter / processor to work with your files. If you do that, you can profile your camera and lens combo to achieve colour chart accurate rendering, after which you can make any additional tweaks per your preferences. Lens colour and contrast reproduction can have a significant impact on JPEG files, but with profiling and raw files you really can normalise output to a significant degree...
