I have been using LR4 to render my files from yesterday and today and pleased with the results. For an experiment I tried Capture NX2, which I did not think was the latest version. To my surprise not only did it recognize the profile, the detail was just sharper and had more pop, even setting everything to default settings, Standard PC. I think Adobe needs to keep working on their D800 profile. Usually they get very close after a couple updates after a new Nikon is released.
No matter what I did, the images just looked better on my monitor with standard settings in NX2, without any adjustments than my efforts with LR4.
Another discovery, well not really, we all know you can crop a lot more., is just how much I could crop and still have a usable image.The D7000 has a similar pixel size and density but even DX mode images on the D800 could be cropped a good deal more than the D7000 files.
