DXO Mark scores the D800E sensor at 96, that of the D800 at 95 and the D700's one at 80.
That is, the D800 sensor is about 16% better than the one on the D700 which I still own.
The Dynamic Range of the D800 is 14.4 Evs, 12.2 for the D700.

Here is recent sample shot made with the D800 at ISO 1600, f/2.8, 1/30s at Death Valley

I know I could have upped the ISO to 3200 or even 6400 for a faster shutter speed to both make the camera steadier and avoiding stars movement; however my brain was numb with the cold and wind.
