However, looking at 100% crops only tells you how each would look when printed to about 100dpi. Or 58" wide for the 5D3 and 74" wide for the D800. I print no larger than 30" wide.

...one would print both photos at a variety of sizes, scan in the prints (or portions of the prints), and post 100% crops of the scans.

This not only compares the photos at the same display size for a variety of print sizes, it includes what the process of printing does with (to) the photo.

Agreed. And on that note, I just received two 20x30" prints, one from my (now sold) 7D and one from my 5D3. They are both low ISO images. You have to put your nose to them to see the advantage to the 5D3, and even then an untrained eye probably couldn't.
