Here I up-scaled the 5D Mark III to the same resolution as the D800 using the normal bicubic algorithm. The Canon looks a bit more washed out in the sky, perhaps due to smaller DR?  Details are pretty similar overall, but if you look at 100% there are a lot of instances of cleaner details in the D800E, such as the grating pattern in the vent on top of the buildings to the left, and the leaves in the woods.  Overall, though, closer than I might have expected.

Here is the upscaled 5D Mark III


And here is the D800:

I prefer the Nikon greens and less contrasty look, but of course this is just an artifact of DXO Optics default settings.  They could be adjusted, but I chose to use default so that the comparison is as close as possible.
