When I look at the incredible detail the D800 picks up I'm awed. The photos it produces are the closest thing to film that I've seen coming out of a digital camera. But, it requires a lot of skill to get those pictures - shooting at a high shutter speed, on a tripod and dealing with mega RAW files. It would have been nice if Nikon had added a small RAW file option. So, when you consider all of these factors the 5D III looks to be a more balanced camera overall and easier to shoot with - I don't think it takes the level of skill the D800 does to get great shots. I just with it was priced more in line with its feature set.
It's not what you look at, but what you see when you look.
