When I eventually upgrade my D700 (no time soon) it will be for a D3s.

Unless you need video or need to shoot super high-res, I'm just not seeing the cost justification over the D700.

Will you be buying a d800? I don't think Nikon people has other choice but D3 & up.

Probably not for now.

I have a couple D700's and don't really need the extra MP's at this point.

What I might buy is a D700s with the D3s sensor.

No questions a bought it. This is my dream camera and the price is much better than I had expected. Before I order I want to see a lot of comparisons between the D800 and the D800E, I am really not sure which would be best for me.

I replaced my D700 with the D3s and I'm very happy with the decision.

I voted maybe, probably going to wait for the reviews.

Does the price for the grip seem really high in comparison to grips we've had in the past? $616 versus $250-$300 for the D300/D700 grip and the D7000 grip.

I'll eventually want to upgrade from my D700 because:
- smaller
- lighter
- better DR
- Better AF sensitivity
- a bit higher resolution
- weaker AA filter
- no blooming or streaky noise with over-exposed light sources
- yes, yes, video - last on the list

But it will be a while before I can afford to upgrade from my D700 unless Nikon comes out with something else, like a D700s (doubt it!).

Until I saw the detailed release information, my answer would have been "no". But after seeing some of the sample pics and reading more about it, I have upgraded to maybe. I am anxious to see how they perform once they are out in the real world instead of prototypes in the hands of some of the best photographers in the world.

More than likely once I can walk into my local shop and rent one first for a day to try it out and see how well my PC can handle those files in post.

Good thing i am upgrading to a mac Mini with dual SSD and 16 GB of RAM this week..

I am happy they went this way with high MP. I am thinking the d700 may not suffer the same fate as the D3x on resale.

+1 I will keep my D700 and buy a D800 to pair with it. I too am curious as to the practicality of the E version.

I must say, it's impressive for such a high-resolution camera, small-pixel. Skin tones are better than I initially thought. I'm seeing only a slight difference between the D800 and D800E - and one that can be re-created in post by boosting sharpness a tad. Given the limitations of shooting with the D800E and the need for additional special software, I'm not tempted it.

The price is not that much higher than a (new) D700, if you can still find one. Hard to resist.

The D800E no way. There will be lots of people bad-mouthing it when it hits the streets, proclaiming it defective in spite of all the press about the differences. I don't have a need for sitting in front of a computer to try to correct Moire, etc.
As for the D800, maybe but it won't be right away if ever. I have a D4 on order and that is going to suit my needs better. When a D300s replacement comes, that will be a likely replacement for my D300 as I'd like to have one Fx and one Dx body. The D400 or whatever it's called has to be enough of an upgrade over the D300 and by that I don't mean just a D300 loaded out with better video. There has to be substantial gains in AF, metering and IQ of still images.
I see problems with the high MP cameras coming. All but the best glass won't perform well and even then your technique must be flawless. OTOH, the D800 is a heck of a lot cheaper than a Pentax 645 digital.....
