I love my D800. I had a crack in the sensor glass on my D800 after a month of use - which Nikon replaced for free. Turn around time was two weeks. A web search turned up one other person with that problem on a D800E. I change lenses a lot and have never had the dust problems you talk about. Although I know of someone who cleaned their mirror with a swab - which caused bits of the foam rubber around it to come apart....
What I believe is that Canon does not have anything close to the D800 to compete with or the Sony Exmor sensor which it uses, so its easier and cheaper to send out trolls and fan boys to disparage the D800. Please accept my apologies if you are not one of those.
You seem happy with Canon cameras. Why bother with Nikon cameras and a Nikon user forum?
