if you resize the d800 to 5dmk3 mk2 file size all surfaces looks cleaner and have more details and less jaggies

Well, as I said, there IS a difference but not huge. And as I mentioned I have only one lens at the moment for the N800E, the 70-200 f/2.8VRII and I have compared to the Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS II and the 24-70 f/2.8L II and the D800E beats both in resolution (same FOV!!) but not with a lot of margin and you would have to print large to see it. It's not the reason I got the D800E btw.

with your lovely nature pictures Im 100% sure it is because of the much better DR and no banding in d800 + better resolution .
