Been reading about how Live View shows the actual exposure when in manual exposure mode, so if you are just relying on flash and setting the ambient exposure way down the image on the LCD is very dark. Seems a lot of studio photographers were unhappy with that.

Have there been any firmware upgrades to the D800 yet? If so, did any address this issue? If not, any idea whether it's something Nikon might do, based on past firmware update history with other cameras?

What I mean is having the option to maintain the LCD at a fixed brightness in manual exposure.
