Got my D800 yesterday and took it out for a spin this AM. Love it. Also made extensive use of Live View which was also a pleasure. The LV in my D300 is too cumbersome (IMO) to use in the field. What looks sharp in the D800 viewfinder needs fine tuning at max magnification in LV. Warning though, I was out for a couple of hours using LV most of the time and when I finished the battery chg was at about 50% so it does eat battery power. Attached are different versions of one of the shots I took with different levels of processing. I think the detail in the sharpened 100% crops is quite impressive.

D800, 300f4 with 56mm of extension, 1/6s, f8, ISO 100, tripod, LV, cable release

1. As shot with no pp except WB and resizing. Vignetting on FX due to 56mm of extension on the 300f4. Didn't notice that when shooting have to be mindful of that when framing. On DX there's no vignetting with that extension.
