Exposure Times

Not a valid test, different exposure tim

No. Both the exposure times and the output of the flashes are different, they cancel each other out.

While the exposure times of the 5D Mark III files are different than the D800, they are also the same as those of the 5D Mark II. The 5D Mark II has virtually identical ISO sensetivity to the D800 according to DXOmark. This proves imaging resource adjusts flash strength and shutter speed to acheive identical exposure.

The number of photons striking each sensor is the same, therefore we have a very good test.
