I processed both raw files in ACR at default settings and output them as PSDs.

I created two two-layered photoshop documents, one with the 5D3 file upsized to the D800E dimensions, and the other with D800E file downsized to the 5D3 dimensions (layers registered using difference blending mode).

As I toggle between the layers in either document, the D800E image is clearly superior - in all areas of the picture (foliage, cables, buildings etc) the D800E renders detail more precisely.

The similarity of other aspects of the images (colour, tone etc) is uncanny.

That's a good catch.  It is somewhat comforting to know that the two major players are in at least some agreement re color. :^)
