Not to hijack the thread, but just to post an example of what I found very interesting with the D800. My initial thought of added DR over the 5D3 was shadow/highlight detail. But actually (this might not even be DR), the gradations in skin tones and mid tones is much smoother. I've always battled Canon files because of too much contrast sometimes.
Oh, and 'recovery' in LR actually does something with D800 files, not to mention the amazing shadow detail as posted in the OP.
Mind you the color is very different SOOC, but, they can both be processed similarly for WB and saturation. I have found that the D800 has quite a bit more color depth and breadth vs the 5D3. They look much more "true to scene", and very much like what I expect out of a MFDB.
Very interesting...the Nikon shot has considerably less contrast than the Canon shot.
On the colors, if you haven't ever used a Colorchecker to make a custom profile for your Canon bodies you might want to give it a try...it made my 1Ds look like an entirely different camera. On a 40D the result was more subtle, but still very noticeable (mostly in the red and blue rendition). Well worth the hundred bucks.
First of all , you can not compare two cameras with out using the same profile, there are different contrast curves
etc etc. Try a Adobe Standard and Camera Neutral you se what I mean.
Regarding colors from Canon or Nikon, the profile decides most of the colors, Canon has a lighter color filter CFA
with little bit different colors and is better suited for lower color temperature 2800K, Nikon has a thicker/ steeper color filter and works better around day light 5500K
There are "more work" for the raw converter to correct the Canons colors in day light and vice versa , more work with Nikons colors and steeper CFA in 2800K
And if you are going to generate a own profile I suggest qp-card www.qpcard.com , easier, faster and better results regarding colors
