It's much the same case for iso as well (D600 actually pulls a little ahead in terms of DR) but the D800 does retain details a little better due to its higher resolution.

That's not really true if you comapre images of the same size. The D800 is better in high ISO, no doubt about that.

There are plenty of reasons to choose a D800 over a D600 (which you did a good job listing) but I think plainly saying "better DR and high iso" isn't really one of them.

Yes it is. The D800 is indeed better at high ISO and DR, but you should not look at JPEG results. Use CNX2 to get the best results and you will see the differences.

The chart I already pasted from DXO does compare RAW files at the same size (there's also a separate chart for per pixel DR where the D600 is well above the D800 but I wouldn't reference that for obvious reasons). Dynamic range is practically the same. I'd welcome some evidence for your claim if you have any.

No ones arguing the D800 doesn't has better resolution and thus details, but I see no evidence showing it has greater DR.
