Apparently the 300mm F4 does not meet the grade, according to Roger Cicala in his blog on lenses recommended / tested on the d800.

That's interesting. It has been tested, but is not recommended. The resolution figures are quite low, and the lens needs to be stopped all the way down to f/8 for optimum sharpness.

The following comparisons however paint a different picture:
