I realize that I'm late to the party about this issue, but I was away using the D4.
I've had the same problem and NPS's and Nikon's response (which I received today) was underwhelming.
"Regarding your recent email to NPS:
Nikon is investigating a permanent solution to this issue and will update users accordingly. To immediately resolve this issue, users can turn off both the "Highlights" and "RGB Histogram" display options in the "Playback Display Options" sub-menu found in the "Playback" menu."
This issue has been around for more than a month and I would have hoped that a permanent solution would have been found by now.
Based on today's response, no solution is forthcoming at least as far as Nikon USA knows.
