the only sharpening i apply to my d800 and d4 files (and it was the same with the d300 and d3) is Nik raw presharpener with an emphasise on edge sharpening as opposed to area sharpen.

out of camera, i think the d4 is sharper than the d3 from what ive seen so far.

I'll have to agree with Colin. I find that the D4 sharpness is a touch better than my D3. I still shoot with both, so it's easy for me to compare. The only issue I ever had with my D4 was white balance. However, with the latest firmware update, this seems to have been corrected.

Check your AF Fine tune. If you're not seeing images as sharp from it, maybe you're back/front focusing. E.g. shoot something vertical like the side of a base in baseball, and see where the dirt is in focus around it. If you consistently see such shots with focus in front or behind, adjust.
