I just picked up a D800 this last week. Of course, the weather was terrible on my first day off, dark, rainy and cold. I took the camera out anyway to see what it could with the flat light. I kept the ISO at 1600 just to see how the detail held up.

D800 | 400VR + TC17E
f/5.6 | 1/4000s | ISO-1600
This one is a very deep crop - as cropped this is a 4MP image.

f/7.1 | 1/2000s | ISO-1600 | cropped just a bit smaller than the DX frame.

It appears that, with good exposure, ISO-1600 is as good a ISO-400 on the D300 at the pixel level.
