Another big difference is the D7100 will AF at f/8 only with the center AF point whereas the D800 can do that as with the D4 with the central 11 AF points. Sounds like the D800's AF system is closer to the D4's than the D7100's.

My D800 is close to my D4, as in when two commercial jets pass too close to each other - miles apart.  And I can read, but my D800 has trouble at f4, so 11points at f8 means nothing.

And to the previous poster who suggested it has to do with the D4 firmware updates - not the case as my D4 is still running the original firmware.
