I think he means the d810 has improved over the d800??

I knew this was awkwardly worded and ripe for misunderstanding :D. Yes, I meant compared to the D800/D800E. I did have a small note about that in parentheses, but I can see how my meaning was muddled. As I mentioned, I don't think we'll really be able to know whether the AF and Live View has caught up to the 5D3 until we have users with both cameras or detailed reviews of the D810. I hope my point was clear: the 5D3 is awesome, and you have to dig for "disadvantages" compared to other cameras. As a well-rounded instrument, there isn't quite anything like it, except maybe the 6D and D610. Whether the D810 is now just as well rounded (and with class-leading resolution and DR to boot) is a possibility that remains to be confirmed or denied.
