Has anyone else observed the D800's tendancy to overcook red in images. Tends to be worse if it's a reddish glow or light, even shooting raw sometimes I am noticing it has totally clipped all information and it's doing it regularly. Is UNIWB the answer, if so can someone go into more detail.

I know what you mean,

And I call them Sony reds, due to that all of my Nikon camera's with a Sony sensor have the similar tendency

You can control it largely by making an own profile.
