I just got off the phone with Nikon tech support with the same issues. I had a studio shoot planned this week with the D800 and while testing it I noticed that when I set the camera to expose for strobe f16 at 1/125 sec. for instance, Live View basically blacks out. I thought that it had to be something I forgot to check in some menu item. Tech support did not know much more, but they checked it out and confirmed that it was functioning correctly. I also use Camera Control Pro for tethering and there is a checkbox for "Exposure Preview" which would seem to be the solution, but it does nothing at all. The job postponed, but I hope some of this is fixed soon because I cannot imagine opening and closing the lens every time I have to view. focus and shoot.
