Interesting that those who extoll the virtues of the very high IQ of the D800 for work such as landscape would even consider those noisy pushed shadows as acceptable. The Sony sensor in the D800 is a wonderful step forward that will allow one to rescue certain types of shots but I just don't see that method of post processing valid for the critical work the camera is intended for.

Exactly and although the D800 certainly is better for shadow pulling there is a limit to that and it's probably about between 1-2 stops over the Canon. But that does not mean that pictures with shadows pulled that much look good. Often they don't.
