OK -- so far the answer must be NO. Not a single reply to my post.
Nikon has finally updated the Camera Control software to work with Mac OS 10.8 (Mt. Lion) - that took about a year.
But, I cannot find any indication that the CC P 2 software works with the Nikon D800. I've had my D800 camera since May of last year ----- and I still I cannot use it in the studio with Camera Control Pro 2 and my studio Mac. How can that be ??????
Nikon has the slowest software team in the world ..... it has always been bad for we Mac users, but now it has gone beyond being ridiculous.
No wonder I have so many friends and customers who use Canon cameras .....
One of my reasons to get the D800 was to use a wider normal lens for big group shots in the studio. I'm still backed up to the wall and shooting with my FX D300 cameras.

Today I downloaded and installed the 2.14.0 version (released 3-7-13 6 days ago) ..
My D800 is STILL NOT recognized by the software.
Nikon says "Support for the D5200 has been added.." ---- nothing about the D800.
It DOES support Mac OS 10.8.2 (after a few years of work by the great Nikon software team .... ) 10.8 - Mt. Lion was announced in Feb. of 2012 - over 1 year ago ...
Bottom line - my D800 is approaching 1 year in my studio and I have yet to shoot a single image when tethered to my studio Mac using Camera Control; Pro 2.
If you are considering a Nikon purchase - and you,, like about 90% of my photography friends and colleagues, are a Mac user ....you might want to take note of this ....

After interacting with Nikon support I got my iMac to recognize my D800 with the new Camera Control Pro 2.14.0
The secret is to restart the computer after the upgrade and then start the CC P2 program -- then connect the D800. I had to wait for 4 minutes .... but then the program found my D800 ----
So - I can shoot in the studio for the first time today with the camera that I bought a year ago....

The key part was not the reboot - it was waiting for several minutes for the program to recognize the D800 camera. Being a type A person, after 60 seconds I concluded. that the 2.14.0 program didn't work. Just give it time .....
