D600 live view resolution

Re the D600, I tested this and it seems that with the resolution of the D600's live view upon magnification depends on whether the camera is focusing or not. While it is focusing, the resolution is low. When it is no longer focusing, the resolution becomes high (as high as the sensor will permit). Logically, when the focus mode is AF-F (full time autofocus), then the camera is always focusing and the resulting resolution will stay low. Upon switching to AF-S, the resolution becomes high again. I don't have a D800 to test, but can anyone confirm whether this is also the case with the D800? If the D600 can show a high resolution at least part of the time while the D800 live view resolution is always low, then that is one advantage that the D600 has over the D800.
