The difference between a D800e and any Canon or other manufacturer's product is far from trivial for any purpose that requires rendition of fine detail and a lot of dynamic range at any magnification.   Zoom in just a bit on any pic with deep shadows taken by a 5DIII and have a look at the low ISO banding crud.   That's not trivial, my friends, it's a big pain in the eyeball.  It's not easy to get rid of and is in fact impossible to eliminate without destroying detail.  The FX Nikons are all satin by comparison, not to mention much better fine detail in the case of the D800.

Be as diplomatic as you like, by all means, but Nikon has been on a major roll these last few years and the other guys have not managed to keep up.  Great for us, too bad for them!

Don't kid yourself.   The only advantage the Nikon has at the moment is the sensor, which it doesn't even produce.  Canon have the edge in terms of AF, video, QC, build quality, and lenses.  If and when Canon gets it's act together in terms of sensors, it's goodnight for Nikon.

Nikon really have to lift their game in terms of R&D and innovation or they will be left behind.
