Just bought a D800 - any tips!

Feeling happy - bought a D800 today to supplement my D300. I plumped for the D800 over the Canon 5d3 for its wider dynamic range, DX crop, more customisation options and I feel more at home with a nikon (muscle memory).

I already have a Sigma 50 1.4 for FX, which is on the camera now, but hoping to get the Tamron 24-70 very soon and hope that the Nikon 18-35 cheap wide angle gets a good write up.

Just wondered if you D800 users have any tips on using the camera and custom controls?
