If you uprez a 5DIII image to 36mp, the difference is not that big, but if you reduce the D800 file to 22mp the difference is more discernable.  If you look at both files at 100%, you could tell that one is a 100% crop, and the other one is crisp, smooth.

There is a difference but it is relatively small and smaller than most would have expected.

In most cases, this is true.  I own both the D800 and 5D3 and for 90% of cases, the difference is either small or irrelevant.  Still it is there and in controlled conditions like landscape and studio work, the difference is pretty evident.

It's much like the differences between the D700 and 5D2.  The D700 delivered lots of keepers, the 5D2, not so much, but the keepers that the 5D2 delivered were amazing.

People must look at the  small details in a picture.
