Fashion and portraiture - that calls for the best image quality.

Off course it does - but obviously you have not done portraiture before - you have control over lighting - no need to push shadows by 4-5 stops - so no need AT ALL for your drange advantage. Go talk to real users in the field about Canon vs Nikon colours and forget about your DXO numbers (which btw are a massive joke - show me images where d800 is '14 points' better than the 5d )

D800 and d800e are primarily landscapers cameras and 5dIII for everything else. IMO one of the biggest advantages of Canon over Nikon for portraiture and fashion are the f1.2 50mm and 85mm - they are both AMAZING lenses
