Color rendition and accuracy through the ISO range would be items to compare Df to D800 and have little to do with the lens chosen.

Downsampling doesn't add any step in PP. Print or view at your chosen output size with images from each camera. At equal DPI the D800 image will be a lot larger. At the same size the D800 image will have higher extra steps needed and the automatic downsampling you've just done in equalizing output size will result in a better resolution image from the D800 with better microcontrast. The optical issues with the lens disappear as you move to smaller output sizes as well. If you're printing large than the Df file will be lower DPI and look worse anyway. I still don't see the argument here unless you only view at large magnifications on screen.
