I now have Read Noise values for the D800 measured from NEF files for a limited set of ISO values.

See FX Read Noise Comparison and D800 Read Noise for details.

So far, the most surprising thing is how early the D800 switches from analog gain to digital gain.

Unfortunately I have no data so far below ISO 400 so performance in that area is entirely speculative.

When we pull some gain and Full Well Capacity (FWC) out of the files; we will know more.
