It seem the top photo (5D3) is brighter so appears the bottom one (D800) is more contrast from your processing. I'd suggest you to dim -1/3 exposure on 5D3 one and let's see again.

I agree that both shots are over exposed, and reducing by .5 gives a much more pleasing result, but as you point out, we are comparing default outputs.

Personally I prefer 5D3 warmer look at least from my default ACR processing.

I do too, though I can't say I like the colors from either shot.

I also just notice the 5D3 photo was taken at F2.0 while D800E was taken at F8.0. Is that real or a EXIF glitch?

I noticed that too. I didn't change the EXIF, so it might be worth asking the OP. I suspect it is a glitch, seeing as the ISO and shutter speeds are identical.
