I find manual focusing through my D4 quite easy, except for very dim light 
(same issue with my R8DMR, although it does have the split image to help), 
also the VF is much brighter than the D800, imho.  The D4 has superior AF 
and high iso performance, even though they technically have the same 
modules, probably due to better firmware?  My other issue with the D800 is 
the low end mirror box, very noisy.

i just looked though a d800 and a d4, d800 is a little dim and smaller than
d4. but also not designed for manual focus lenses.
