DR often beyond D4/D800 capability

Very often the DR of a scene goes beyond the capability of a D800 or D4.

The use of two or three bracketed shots gives you much more leg room in post processing. The new version of Photomatix Pro is really fast, especially in 64 bit mode, and gives a lot of parameters to play with. It also has a clever algorithm to remove ghosts from moving objects. A gradient filter can be easily added with Photoshop after HDR tone mapping.
An example is shown below:
