Both are good cameras but for your stated subject matter, the D600 will give better results. The AF system is not as fast on the D600 but portraiture is not a problem for speed of acquisition. What causes the D600 to win in this competition is the low ISO file quality with vastly superior DR and color depth. If you are like most portrait shooters you will do some post processing and this is where the Nikon's, all of them from the D7000 on up, shine, with lots of flexibility in usable captured data. Boosting shadows is a good example, the 5DIII files degrade in shadow recovery with artifacts and banding that limit post processing options. The D7000, D600 and D800 all have  this trait of great file data fidelity even when pushed 4-5 stops. 14.4 stops of DR really do come in handy.

Spoken like a true engineer   lol   next
