my only niggle now is why black does not "look" black on the lcd monitor .  purple/blueish   when enlarged anything above 50% or so .  other than that ,i concede my initial suspicions were user error ,obviousely I need to allow a fair bit of time adapting to the way the D800 works and behaves .

This is not your camera's fault but very likely due to (Longitudinal) Chromatic AberrationĀ in your lens; a "known deficiency" with many fast lenses. If you stop down to f/2.8 you'll be good for most purposes -- and in many cases you'll be just fine with that lens also wider than f/2.8
