I question why the reviews do not reflect that ? The reviews are less than excellent overall.

Really? Got some examples? DP Review has already been posted, but Camera Labs has:

"The Nikon D800 is a triumph for still shooters. The new 36 Megapixel full-frame sensor delivers tremendous quality, comfortably out-resolving the Canon EOS 5D Mark III while matching its noise levels when viewed at 1:1. For the best quality you should be shooting in RAW, but even the D800's in-camera JPEGs using the default settings are very pleasing. This really is getting close to medium format quality but from a body that's smaller, quicker and much cheaper, not to mention superior at higher ISOs."

That's pretty tepid...
