There are too many sentences and I don't want to reply one on one basis as most of them are the same regarding below the key point.

When printed at the same size (and why would we be comparing systems in any other matter), more pixels will yield more detail every time (all else equal).

Yeah a big ONLY if all else equal, that's the point. To achieve all else equal such as similar per-pixel level IQ, you'd need better technique on D800 such as using the best lens (such as Sigma 35/1.4) on tripod, otherwise the advantage is disappearing quickly. See, DXOMark shows with a better lens such as 24-70L II,  5D3 actually has better perceptual sharpness that roughly based on MTF 30 resolution in beating D800 with 24-70G, whoops, no mention if D800 not take on a sturdy tripod.

24-70L II on 5D3 vs 24-70G on D800

Did you read Hans' post? We don't have to believe each other's words, but no doubt on his words. He is one of the most respected photographers in DPR forums.  He owns both and he prints from both cameras on large-format printer.  I have read from several others who own both and claimed the same.
