5DIII VS D800 Night sky/Star Trails ?

Anyone have any experience with a comparison of the 2 doing the mentioned subject matter. Currently shooting with a 5D, and would like to get some better results (lower noise/increased image adjustment latitude) at around 30sec/f2.8/ISO 400/800 of the night sky.

Gonna rent a 5DIII for a couple of days and give it a go 'cause I have the lenses, might do the same with the D800 and a lens, but would rather not If I can resolve for myself which one would be better with gathered input.

For most of the "other" stuff I do I think either would be fine.

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks, Mike
