Am looking into finally upgrading my kit,

Choices...

Nikon d800e with Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G...or

Canon 5d mk3 with Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L ll USM

I work in Fashion and Portraiture, and was wondering which Kit would be more suitable or just which would you prefer and why?

Canon seems to be a more popular choice in this Industry but am not sure why!

Pros and Cons would be amazing....

Thank You....

Marek...while you can't really go "wrong" with either, for low iso image quality, the D800 or D800E are clearly better than the 5d3.   There's a lot more to the D800's dynamic range advantage than simply lifting shadows and the resolution is simply stunning.  D800 high iso performance is also excellent up to 3200.  I would give the 5d3 a slight AF advantage over the D800 bodies.

Personally, I can't wait for the new "high performance" lenses from Zeiss, designed specifically for 30MP+ bodies...should be spectacular!  For my fashion, beauty & portraiture work, I strongly prefer primes.  That said, the Canon and Nikon 24-70 lenses are very good zooms.
