These are what I did by upsampling 5DIII file to the same size of D800E in CS6, everything is default/zero setting in ACR, the steps everyone can duplicate. Certainly you can see difference by pixel peeping but is pretty small even at D800E full size.

I would suggest you stop pixel peeping for once and look at the picture as a (partial) whole - The image on the left is far more pleasing than the washed out one on the right. You need to start tossing the idiotic amount of DR compressed into the right image - the trees below the building have no depth whatsoever and that is down to the too large DR that was captured on the right and "preserved" in processing.

They both have about the same amount of resolution but the one on the right has more DR - to the detriment of the picture as a whole!

then might I suggest you learn to post process to avoid this detriment.  Geeesh.
