I just got it a few hours ago and have not put it through its paces. But for what its worth, I thought I'd share a few things.

The shutter sound is amazing! Its great in that it is much quieter. And then there is the Q mode which is also good. This is appreciated.

The Live View is now in video mode breathtaking! I'm not sure how to quantify this yet until I do direct comparisons with the D800.

My 3rd party wasabi battery that works with the D800 does NOT work with the D810.

The highlight metering appears to work in limited testing. I cannot wait to try this out on stage shows.

ISO 10000 is quite usable if necessary. I can't wait to try this out in stage show venues too.

I'm not sure how perfect focussing is yet on the 50 1.8G. I've had a few images that might be slightly off. But my shots have all been hand held and not on image targets.

that is about all that I can say so far. It looks promising.
