This is easily my favorite lens out of any I currently own. I don't have a D800, but I have used it on a variety of other Nikon bodies, from D90 to D3X. It's great straight from maximum aperture, great bokeh, really weakness to worry about as far as image quality. The AF isn't the fastest in the world, but it's plenty fast enough for birds in flight and other action on a good body. Slower but still totally usable with the 1.7x TC as well, which makes it a 500mm f/6.7. Photozone has tested this lens, but not on a fullframe body yet.

Here's a link to some samples on my photostream, and there are probably a few more I never tagged. All are with the 300mm f/4 AF-S except the one it's in, and one picture taken with the Canon 300mm f/4 on the 5D Mark II in B&H.
