I find the live view performance is very good. I use it for manually focusing since many of my lenses are manual. Because of the large magnification (which I like) you can see some noise but it is not a problem. The manual focus procedure on D800E is involved but it is not Nikon fault, they have a mirror (mirror is up during live view). Lots of buttons to push. Just on this one point, if you want to see nice manual focus go use a mirrorless camera, such as Nex-7. It is fun to use the camera on manual focus on Nex-7. I will probably keep my D800E. I came from medium format and it reminds me of my Bronica 6x7.
