This is a long thread I don't know if someone has mentioned it that DXOmark has only tested the D800 with the old 70-200 VR (not the current VRII), they have not tested the 14-24 2.8 or the tele lenses 200/2 or 300/400/2,8 or 500/4 whereas the top score for the 5DIII was made with the equivalent super tele lenses. for example the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM

That's correct, the VRII is not tested at this point but the new 70-200 f/4VR is. For Canon they only tested the 300 f/2.8L IS II, not the longer ones. The D800E is only tested with a few lenses so far, but looking at the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di LD the D800 scores 15 M-Pix and the D800E scores 21 M-Pix. I would expect that the entire lens collection will be tested on both D800 and D800E.
