Yes, its not hard to make them very very close. But, the difference is there SOOC for me, and, it's much easier and quicker for me to get the contrast ratios in the D800 files vs 5D3...and this is coming from a long-time Canon die-hard. But its not just the contrast, the tonal gradation is just nicer on the D800.
There is also quite a bit more color depth in the D800.
Now, I'm not one to fall-back on synthetic lab tests, but the DXO mark tests also coincide with the "real world" application of what I'm seeing. There's more DR and more color depth. Not to mention incredible resolution. D800 sensor is better than the 5D3. As for the camera body, well, thats a matter of preference.
I'm also aware of LR4 I just don't care for its speed and the new processing version.
Speed issues with LR4 should be fixed now. It should run the same as LR3.. anyway...
The D800 sensor in low ISO *IS* better than the 5d3's. I agree. No arguments. However, the differences are not night and day as your example shows.
The major difference between those two files is in post production, not sensor...
I'm not "defending" Canon on this point, but I also wouldn't want people to get the wrong idea that Canon cameras can't produce nice colours and tones.... they can. In fact, that's a major reason I use Canon. I personally prefer the colours and tones and always have. That's personal preference too.
