So I have a predicament, which isn't a bad one to have I suppose. I picked up a D3s this morning and now I'm not sure which camera to keep. My main area of interest is street photography, but I do candids and some landscapes as well. The majority of my candid shots are indoors, so the D3s obviously has the advantage there. I don't print anything bigger than 8x10, so I'm not sure I need the 36mp of the D800. I do like the dynamic range of the D800 though. So I guess the question is, based one what I shoot, what would be the better camera for my needs? I'm going to do an engagement shoot for some friends on Friday, and I'll be using the D3s to see how it does.
Two things to consider: for street photography, the D800 is the winner. Smaller is better.
The other thing, with regarding the high ISO noise performance of each: you might find that, at the resolutions you're printing at, for practical purposes, the higher noise in the D800 files at a given ISO aren't really a factor at all.
