I've been shooting the D800E and editing in LR4 for about 1-week. LR-4 uses a modification of PS USM (algorithm influenced by the late Bruce Frasier) for the input or capture sharpening. My previous experience has been with D200 and D700 files - both of which I almost always added from 25% to 40% capture sharpening. With the D800E, I still see an improvement with adding capture sharpening within this range. I think your step 1 is still going to be desirable.

As far as the D800E vs the D800; I don't imagine there will be any difference concerning input sharpening but I only have the E. Perhaps someone out there has both cameras and can answer that question without speculation.

Good luck with your D800E. I'm still getting a handle on what this camera is capable of. Today I shot a swarm of bees in a tree (about 60' up) at 400 mm and got clear images of the bodies and wings of individual insects.
