You never shoot red?

Here you go, the awrfull D800 jpeg at iso 6400

Look at the red fabric

From the left it is

5D3, D800, 5D2, 7D, D700, D4

IQ wise the ranking is

D800, D4, D700, 5D2, 5D3, 7D

But then again mayby 2 out of 3 is okay for you - and you never shoot reds but only green and blue

And by the way remember that the 5D3 is exposed 60% longer at 1/800s, than the D800 at only 1/1250s

If we compared 5D3 at ISO 6400 to D800 at ISO 3200 the D800 would only get a 25% exposure advantage
