I truly don't get the fps desire. I shoot sports (among other things) and have never really wished for more fps when I was shooting. Mainly because I can time a shot. I know... it's hard to comprehend. I hear these guys at the races firing off shots like a mini-gun and laugh. "Just point and spray!"
Personally, I could easily get away with the D800's fps in motocross, bmx and skateboarding.
well I found that when shooting birds in flight, critters and then some sports action you can never plan for the unexpected moment. a simple twitch of the eye, a feather edge repositioned, a tongue sticking out...these special shots are easier to capture if you can manage 12 shoots within one second rather than 4 or 5.
but then again, this isn't photography...it is luck.
