I have both the 5D mkIII with the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L II and 70-200 f/2.8L IS II (and more) and the D800E with the Nikon 70-200 f/2.8VRII. To my eyes there is little to distinguish the resolution between the 5D III with the 70-200 and the D800E with the 70-200.

I'm also shooting with a Phase One IQ160 and the resolution of the 60MP of this camera is heads and shoulders above the two DSLRs! There are no measurements of the Phase One cameras with lenses on DxO, but my feel is that the IQ160 resolves at least 50MP or more with the best lenses.

Same as you Hans, I have the 5D3 and the D800E; I don't see major difference in resolution except one thing.... I hate the color tonality of the D800E, it looks artificial!

In the film era, Nikon reigns supreme, not anymore for their latest crop of digital cams....

Been thinking of off-loading all my Nikon gears; but not an easy task with 4 bodies and thirty some old and new nikkors that I never touched....... sad!
