"RE: d800 and Zeiss zf.2 problems when in manual"

Couple things both in the same menu area:
- You could try ==> Custom Settings Menu ==> f) Controls ==> f9) Customize Command Dials ==> Aperture setting ==> Aperture ring
This would allow Aperture ring to control Aperture setting.

Independent of the above you could also try ==> Custom Settings Menu ==> f) Controls ==> f9) Customize Command Dials ==> Change main/sub ==> ON.
Then see if the back command dial will now change Aperture. Perhaps the problem is worked around by switching to the back dial for Aperture?

If you don't mind, I and perhaps others would be very interested in your impression of the D800 video files.

BTW - My Nikon G lens (no aperture ring), works fine, I can control shutter and aperture with front and back command dials.

Best regards, SteveK
