Way to put 5D III curve into D800E or PS for raw conversion?

That's because different curves were used for the images. It has nothing to do with "fine details" and "micro-contrast".

While that is true for the first set, it is not true of the 2nd set.

It is true for both images.

I agree that the curves are quite different and I must say that I like the curves applied to the 5D III image much better than the standard Nikon curves.  Is there an easy way to upload a Canon like curve into D800 or Photoshop for processing D800E raw files to have the contrast curve of the 5D III?
