Re: The higher the ISO the more critical is the exposure

Sorry, this really doesn't mean anything at all. First, what do you mean by 'perfectly exposed' or 'a proper exposure'? ISO 3200 sets the nominal exposure, and if the light level in the room is enough to get that exposure at 1/1000, f/2.8 then it is, regardless of which camera is pointing at it. Or are you talking about the metering system being set other than for 3200? If so the D800 allows you to recalibrate it yourself. Please clarify what you mean.

I see why that was confusing. Sorry.

Any camera would have had a tough time getting a decent exposure in that environment. In these examples, the light level was not enough to get a proper exposure at 1/1000, f/2.8 at ISO3200.
