I jsut got my D800 and I am setting up my settings. I can't see the exposure compensation scale on the right side of my view finder. I use the AF button to focus on the rear of the camera, but I don't think this is the problem. Is there a custom setting that needs to be turned on? I have the scale in my D3s, so I am a bit frustrated at the moment.

I'm afraid what you're seeing is the same display as the D700 with the exception that now the D800 has a virtual horizon scale where the meter and exposure compensation scale is on the D3 and D4 bodies. The scale at the bottom of the viewfinder is tiny by comparison to the D3 and D4. I don't think there is a custom setting to give you what you're looking for.

Under Aperture Priority Mode I am seeing the exposure compensation scale at the bottom of the viewfinder. Also when I press the exposure compensation button I see the setting in the right hand side of the viewfinder while it is pressed. hope this helps

In the D800, the eV scale is located on the bottom of the viewfinder. It's fully visible in the viewfinder in P, A or S mode. In M mode, you can still bias the eV (you have to look at the top LCD to see your adjustment), but the scale in the bottom of the viewfinder actually shows automatic compensation by the camera.
