I'll bet the D800s fixes that issue - it's a big sticking point for an otherwise incredible camera.

Is the D800s anything other than a rumor at this point? I haven't heard anything about it.

I had a chance to handle a D800 today at a local camera store and I must say that the LV issues don't appear to be as bad as I originally thought. Sure, the noise is there, but didn't seem as bad as some of the YouTube videos I've seen. The store was fairly low-light, but even under those conditions I was able to focus manually using LV.

I also tried the 5Dmk3 and yes, its LV is better than the D800's, but overall I liked the feel and handling of the D800 better.
