New features:
The first digital SLR camera in Nikon's history to offer a minimum standard sensitivity of ISO 64 at which superior clarity and image quality with rich tones is achieved
A minimum standard sensitivity of ISO 64, at which the same broad dynamic range available with ISO 100 is possible, was achieved through the adoption of a new FX-format CMOS sensor and by increasing the volume of light information that can be accumulated. This enables suppression of loss of detail in highlights (blown highlights) and beautiful rendering of subjects with rich tones, even when a fast lens is used in bright surroundings. In addition, collaboration with the same EXPEED 4 image-processing engine adopted for the D4S achieves a broad range of standard sensitivities up to ISO 12800 (Lo 1, Hi 1, and Hi 2 settings are also available).

New Features:

A new "Flat" Picture Control option has been added with the D810. Less in-camera processing is applied to images captured at a Picture Control setting of "Flat" than to those captured at a setting of "Neutral", enabling maximization of the amount of subject information acquired. The "Flat" setting prevents loss of detail in highlights and shadows, as well as over-saturation of colors, enabling adjustment of image quality and post-processing for richer tone characteristics, including contrast and colors. In addition, a "Clarity"*1 option has been added to adjustment settings for each Picture Control, allowing users to make images sharper or softer without over-emphasizing outlines and edges in images, and each setting can be adjusted in increments of 0.25 step*2, enabling more precise adjustment that makes it easier to achieve imaging that better reflects user intent.

*1Can be applied only to still images.
*2Does not apply to Quick Adjust.

D810 Additional Features

An electronic front-curtain shutter that prevents blur in images with minimization of vibration resulting from the operation of mechanisms with shooting
Highlight-weighted metering, with which exposure values that reduce loss of detail in highlights (blown highlights) are determined, convenient for capturing theater scenes and the like
The first Nikon FX-format camera with an OLED viewfinder display; an optical viewfinder with frame coverage of approximately 100% that offers better light transmissivity and colors, and makes it easier to achieve the optimal focus when fast lenses are used
A 1229k-dot LCD monitor with bright RGBW array equipped with the "Monitor color balance" function that allows users to adjust monitor colors
A "Split-screen display zoom" function that displays enlarged views of two separate areas of the frame side-by-side for checking level if the building is aligned with the horizon with live view photography
Advanced Scene Recognition System, which utilizes a 91K-pixel RGB sensor, for highly precise automatic control over auto exposure (AE), autofocus (AF), and auto white balance (AWB)
RAW recording at an image size of "Small"
Multi-area mode full-HD D-movie that allows users to choose between two movie formats (image areas), FX-based and DX-based
Improved movie sound quality with "Wind noise reduction" and "Frequency response" ("Wide range"/"Vocal range") settings
Optimal layout of operational controls, and a grip sized and shaped for a firm, steady hold even when large lenses are used
Effective sealing for superior resistance to dust and water

Oh, and it has NO low pass filter. (As opposed to the self-defeating filter on the d800e)

DP review has a hands on:

Little ways off that $4500 everyone was so worried about

Seriously though, they added tons of new features that weren't in the leaks. I'm extremely impressed.

another tidbit:
"Other welcome changes include a redesigned shutter and mirror mechanism to mitigate resolution-reducing shock from shutter actuation, and a new S-Raw mode for reduced-resolution raw capture (Nikon owners have been asking for that one for years)."

Also of note is it weighs 880 grams with battery as opposed to the D800 at 1000 grams - which means it is essentially the same weight as the d610 now.

Plus quieter operation, improved metering, improved focus, etc.

That's a very palatable price, and if the specs aren't being hyped up by marketing speak too much it looks like an amazing camera. Hopefully it'll show well in reviews - I especially look forward to seeing Dxomark lens tests on the D800e and the D810 to see if the OLPF removal makes a big difference to sharpness.

No focus peaking in live view -- that is incorrect as far as I can tell (sadly). They added "zebra" mode for video, which is used for exposure, not focus.

The OLPF with electronic first curtain and the redesigned shutter to reduce vibrations... this thing is going to be sharp !

Anyone know if FPS can be improved with battery grip in FX mode or RawS mode?

Sadly it looks like they didn't remove all that much weight. According to the Nikon USA site:

D800E - 900g
D810 - 880g
D610 - 760g
D7100 - 675g

From what I read that 880 grams for the D810 includes the battery while the D800 weight is without battery. And the battery seems to add about 100 grams.
Though its hard to tell for sure which stat is correct...

Looks like they just merged these threads without including the main reason for my thread (too much incorrect price speculation):

** Official US PRICE is 3299.95. **

Looks like no improvements to Liveview for stills.
No support for viewfinder replacement screens.
Will be interesting to see how much improvement not having a OLPF makes.
