Thanks a lot for the info!
I am not sure if i can properly read the graph you posted and which of the numbers are more important than the others.
What impresses me the most is the fact that a 2012 camera (D800E) has better DR and less noise at iso 12800 and 25600 than a 2014 camera (D810).

But the point most of us are making is that high ISO and noise are no longer a differentiator across cameras.  They are all close enough to the same that it does not matter.  If you think you can see a difference, it's probably in processing rather than inherent noise or dynamic range.

If anyone would like to buy a D800E, they are readily available for $650 and up.
