As far as your question, like I said in my earlier post, it is not odd for a smaller sized individual sensor to demonstrate more noise than a larger one.  This is true when you compare Nikon's own D600 against the D800.  However, overall, the noise is equal or lower because the additional pixels.  The noise will only be greater if you crop the D800 compared to not cropping the 5D Mk2.

Don't the D600, D800 and 5D Mk2 all have full frame sensors?

"Individual sensor size."  A little confusing but I was referring to the size of the individual pixels in the sensor.  The larger the pixel, the higher the signal to noise ratio.
