Interesting post but most of what you wrote - nonsense about blown highlights with the two Nikons, green color cast to all Nikon images, is simply not true.

I have a Nikon D800 and files from the D800 (DR improvements, no banding, etc) are considerably better than my previous camera the 5d II.

You may get upvotes for what you've written but very little regarding you criticisms of the two Nikons passes the truth test. There are perfectly valid reasons to buy a 5D3 (video comes to mind) but for still IQ, and sensor performance, the D800 and D600 are absolute state of the art right now.

"State of the art" regarding top end cameras these days really means a .05% advantage...

If you can't make professional grade fine art photographs with any of these cameras, it aint the camera that's the problem... but it quite possibly could be the infinite fretting over miniscule differences in specific performance areas vs. actually improving anything to do with the pilot's abilities, practice, or knowledge.
