If you are shooting portraiture the difference is indeed small because they are close up shots, the big difference, however, comes when you are shooting landscape and examine the detail of the farthest (not nearest) objects in the scene, such as little branches on the farthest trees. The amount of detail that D800 captures against 5DII or 5DIII is staggering and that is the kind of detail that no amount of sharpening can bring back because it simply isn't there. One shows nothing but mush, but the other one renders individual branches.

I shoot landscapes and I don't agree. There is more resolution bur far from staggering. If you want staggering extra resolution you need to look at full frame medium format from 60MP and up.
