3c.) Focusing with Live View in bright sunlight is much easier with the Canon because the LCD glass is treated with an effective coating and in comparison, Live View visibility on the D800E is slightly to significantly washed out depending on light levels but, since I used focus confirmation for the Nikon image, Live View visibility will not or should not affect the outcome.

Doesn't this mean you used a more accurate magnified Live View manual focus for the 5D3 and and the potentially less accurate PDAF for the Nikon?  I would think that could potentially have a noticeable effect on the outcome as folks will likely be pixel peeping (I'm on my phone so can't really look at the images in a useful way).  Seems like a questionable approach for a comparison like this as it adds an extra unknown wrt focus?
