In landscape is probably where the DR matters the most.  The D800 seems like the no brainer decision right now for a landscape photographer, especially if you are going to print huge.  Do you shoot HDR often?  That pretty much eliminates any difference anyway, as shooting HDR means that you can span a much greater DR than either camera.

DR is pretty much the only area in which I would expect the 5100 to be "better" than the 6D.  DXO's measurements seem odd to me, and at odds with a lot of other review sites.  The rate the d600 as having higher ISO performance than the 6D and in head to head comparisons I just don't see it.  Look at some of the ISO video reviews and the 6D is dominating there, for instance.  It's just confusing.

I can't imagine the 5100 winning in low ISO noise either, honestly, other than when pushing shadows which is a function of the dynamic range difference.

Not sure this helps, just some thoughts.
