Spent a few hours with my D800e in the sunny park today.  My observations:

1. Yes - The green tint has been significantly reduced, almost eliminated.

2. No - Now replaced with a horrible yellow cast when image displayed on LCD.  (PS:  The file color in PS is ok.)

3. OMG - Now my years of photo taking reduces me to nobody.  I usually do manual metering.  After the upgrade, when the image is displayed on the yellow tinted LCD,  it looks over exposed, at least by 1-stop.  But when I opened the photo in Photoshop, the exposure is normal.  I swear to HIM up there I didn't touch the LCD display intensity before the upgrade, nor after the upgrade. Now is time to have fun on LCD display exposure tuning . . .

Amen.
