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?
