just from my experience with interior, fashion, advertising shoots, no landscape(!).

If you need the massive dynamic range from the Nikon sensors since the d800 there is something wrong in your scene and 99% of the times the photo will look, artificial, tacky or somehow wrong. To get a professional commercial look be careful with your scene contrast. you can fix everything in post — but I don't mean it will sell. 
With Portraiture, fashion, people — if you have to use the range your photo will suck. Unless you are aiming for a particular, look. But most of the time it will look unprofessional, amateurish.  But I also have to admit, it is so nice to have... in this sense it is a pitfall.
