I see basically no difference. D800 14-stop DR doesn't jump out by itself automatically. In real world photos I don't shoot extreme contrasty scenes (not in my taste anyway) and don't need to pull 4 or 5 stops from deep dark in extreme. I can easily stitch two 5D2 photos to match 36mp and less distortion.

Both deliver great images as expected.

The D800 might have a slight edge in tonal range, but maybe it's because I'm looking for it.

Not to mention the 5DII can be had for about half the price.
