In a few days, I will have a D800! Oh my, I'm so excited. I have an S5 Pro by Fujifilm, and I love that camera's highlight sensor. But looking through a 1.5x crop factor camera has that tunnel vision of a view, I can't wait to have a 100% full-frame viewfinder like my old Nikon F5.

It is similar, but the OVF is not as big as your f5.  The d800 has a 0.7x OVF magnification rating while the f5 had a 0.75x.  35mm OVF's have gotten smaller over the years.
