As for high ISO, the real difference for actual low light shooting is negligible if you use a raw workflow. It's just that Nikon chooses not to include the higher ISO's as control options (their NR isn't as good as Canon's so if you compared JPEGs they'd look worse)

You sure about the Jpegs looking worse ?

Yikes - you mean that the 5DIII got a stop more exposure than the D800 and two thirds more than the D600! In that case, they are doing pretty well.But actually the crops illustrate what I mean. the Canon NR preserves edges much better, the Nikon is inclined to smudge over edges and leave colour blotches around. When you look hard, they have annihilated similaramounts of detail, but the Canon does it a bit more tastefully.

Yes when you go to http://www.imaging-resource.com/IMCOMP/COMPS01.HTM  & compare the 5DMKIII & D800 at high ISO the 5DMIII gets double the exposure time at ISO 3200 , 6400 & 25600 I presume it holds true for the inbetween ISO's.

The D800 is definately showing more detail & a lot  more noise with rougher edges when you pixel peep  but view at normal distance it just looks more detailed & slightly more noise.

With more detail you can always use extra noise reduction in Photoshop if the camera starts with less detail & has already used too much noise reduction you have less options.

D800 ISO 25600 at 25MP post processed with more noise reduction.

Or just use the same f8 & 1/3200  sec as the 5DMKIII at ISO 25,600  & use ISO 12800 SOOC
