D800 pentaprism or pentamirror? CPU needed for matrix metering?

Can anyone verify that the D800 has a pentaprism based viewfinder like all of the existing FX bodies? I believe that I saw pentamirror in the printed specifications.

Also - can anyone verify that the D800 requires a CPU based lens to matrix meter? This would be a step backward as all the newer pro bodies have the ability to enter lens info for non-cpu lenses to activate the matrix capability. This is most helpful for scientific and macro work where specialized lenses, bellows, microscopes, etc are part of the system.
