The lesson learned to all from this thread - and the only one- is that DR has its price in contrast. And one may have to post-process the images for this reason. Simple level operations can go a long way.

An interesting theory, but I'm not seeing the D800 exhibiting lower contrast or washed-out greens in comparison to the 5D3.

Here are the jpegs output from ACR at default settings (Adobe Standard, White Balance 'As Shot').

Please toggle between them. I'm not seeing any significant difference in contrast or colour.
