If I still owned a 5DIII, I could...

The D800 beats the snot out of the 5DIII in any measure of or aspect of IQ dependent upon dynamic range and low read noise through ISO 1600. At this point, for anyone with eyes to see realizes that. However, high ISO in ample daylight is not the test of a camera's high ISO capabilities, I feel. Test these two in dim artificial (tungsten) light beyond ISO 1600, and you'll see the 5DIII fairly easily run away from the D800. The D800's high ISO weakness is the reason I've supplemented it with a Dƒ.

Can you show a demonstration of the 5DIII "running away" vs the D800 at High ISO?

...the OP has both, so maybe he'll supplement his initial test with a series in low tungsten light. Amp noise on the D800 alone makes dynamic range and color fidelity at ISOs higher than 3200 progressively worse than one might anticipate.

Have you used both at high ISO?
