The "e" is more detailed and punchier, as one would expect given the 12MP advantage and lack of blur filter.  Clarity, vibrance, blacks have to be pushed plus ten to get the same apparent contrast as the naked D800e file.  Use the same settings on the D800e with plus 40 sharp on both and it's game over.   The 5D shot has some sort of reverse vignetting going on which requires minus 40 to even out.  Maybe caused by the adaptor.  Nice corners and infinity rendition on the Zeiss, an excellent lens all around.  Good correction for edge CA with LR4.

Hard to go wrong with either camera, etc., etc.

5DII

D800e
