I have been trying out the D800 for landscape and architectural photos and still use my D700 for general and concert photos.
When processing the D800 NEF files in NX2 I have noticed that the sharpening slider must be run up to "10" to get fully sharp images. This was discovered when evaluating a picture of the inside of our old movie theater that is being rebuilt and looking at the layered roof trusses at the far end using the 1x magnification feature. This was surprising as going past "6" will usually make the D700 files start to have obvious artifacts.
I have just updated to the "new" download of NX2, but have not tried it out, yet.
A 300 KB JPEG (largest allowed by site) is attached: D800, 14-24mm F2.8 G lens; 14mm, ISO 200, 1/10 second, F22; cable release, mirror up, big Bogen tripod.
