Your math is completely wrong

Compare the price of Nikon D800.

And you should see price is very modest, extra 20% for 50% more af points and 50% faster fps. And that is comparing with one of the best in the market. if you look at how it compares to 1ds3 you would almost want to buy it right now.

5D III has 61 AF points whereas D800 has 51. That is only a 19% increase not 50%. Also, D800 can do 4fps in FX mode and 6 fps in DX mode, but I will give you this one. In any case, if AF points and FPS are the only things you look at, then D700, which can do 8fps and has 51AF points, must be a super bargain compared to 5D II !!
