You can specify the lowest and highest ISO you're comfortable with using the Auto ISO feature.

No. You cannot specify minimum ISO. For D800, it is always set to 100. But in reality it hardly gets down to that.

That's incorrect. You can always set higher than ISO100 as minimum ISO and in that case the camera will always start with that ISO. It will go below that only if the shutter speed / aperture is not possible to alter any more to avoid overexposure. Try it out, it is easy to test.

I have my camera set to ISO sensitivity 100 and maximum ISO is 3200 in Auto ISO and it often gets down to ISO100. Of course, it depends on the light and the lens.
