I had a post up over in the CNX2 forum on this (similar) issue.
As a stand alone Transfer for whatever reason will not import the data at 14 bit, only at 12 bit hence the sizing constraints and resolution in RAW.
I was having trouble over the weekend on a shoot with missing control faders, and sizing.
My posted thread eventually was solved by trial and error and recalling that there had been advice on another thread after the D800 hit the shelves (by Nikon) to ingest RAW NEF data using the button on the tool bar in CNX2's latest version.
I erased both primary and backup files, and re-imported.
The acuity and detail, plus general look at 100% are (to me) stunning with a caveat that keepers (based upon intent and composition) require even more thought these days but what a wonderful machine the D800 is!
