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.

It might help if you posted a sample or said under what conditions you are seeing this.

To some extent I agree with what you say. For example, when shooting Caucasian skin in strong lighting I set image preview to show blinkies on the red channel only. This works for me to avoid overexposure and produce good skin tones.
