. The D800 image in this example appears washed out even though I believe that at the pixel level it contains more fine detail.

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?

Too much glass...too little time

TOF guy failed to answer my question. Maybe you'll be so kind as to tell me what type of curve are you referring to i.e. a PPing Curve as found in Photoshop?
