Some of the problem is solved. But it keeps you from using live view. Or, at the very least, it makes you back out of live view and then go to mirror up. And you still get the vibration from the first shutter curtain, which you don't get with Canon or Sony.

I can't speak to the shutter curtain, but unlike older models the D800 doesn't perform the "bang-bang" mirror operation in live view mode.

Quoting http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d800/features03.htm:

"As a result, shutter release can be operated with mirror-up position during live view. Because mirror-down movement is not required, you can expect even quieter still live view shooting."

You can also use live view in MUp mode without backing out of anything, but I'm not sure there's any benefit in doing so.
