The reason I asked if this viewfinder cropping has changed is that in the Tech Specs on the NikonUSA site it says this:

Viewfinder Frame Coverage:
FX (36x24): 100% Horizontal and 100% Vertical Approx.
1.2x (30x20): 97% Horizontal and 97% Vertical Approx.
DX (24x16): 97% Horizontal and 97% Vertical Approx.
5:4 (30x24): 97% Horizontal and 97% Vertical Approx.

If this means what I hope it does, they may have addressed my question and just couldn't quite get full frame coverage. Maybe??? That would be a huge step in the right direction. Filling the viewfinder would make the DX mode on the D800 very usable at 16 MP, just like the D4.
