I have a Canon 5D MKIII and a Nikon D800e.
IMO the AF on Canon 5D MKIII excels over the Nikon D800.
The Dynamic Range on the D800e is unreal and in my opinion better than the Canon 5D MKIII.
And the detail on a 36MP image is also something to marvel at.
But at the end of the day 36MP does not look that great if you miss half the shots due to a poor AF system. And you really cant beat Canon L glass. With the D800 you need the best of the best glass to maximize the resolution potential.
I only use the D800e for product photography and Landscape shots. For everything else i prefer the Canon 5D MKIII.
So it really depends on what you shoot. But for an all around camera - you cant beat the Canon.
