1) We had considerably more pre-orders for D800s than 5D3s;

2) We have received enough D800s to fill half the back orders;

3) We have received 4x as many 5D3s as D800s, plenty to fill the pre-orders on 5D3s, and double the pre-orders of the D800s;

4) We sold every 5D3 the day we received them. No stock piling up.

Yes, in pre-orders, the D800 looked unbeatable. In the real retail world, not so much.
