carsten – none of those reasons really have anything to do 24mp versus 36mp. your're just saying you'd like the D800 to be a better camera not a better imager. i don't get why you would jump at 24mp D800? it would still have all those flaws except it wouldn't show off your lenses weaknesses quite as much. you should just set lightroom (or whatever you use) to zoom in to 66% instead of 100% when you click magnify and it will be like you have the 18mp camera you really wanted (won't help ergonomics any though).

I think all or at least most of these would be fixed with a 24MP D800, as long as they actually tune the camera for the 24MP sensor, and don't just rip out one and shove in the other. The resolution is lower which presumably makes the optical viewfinder sufficient for accurate manual focus, like the D600 or D3x, except in mentioned dark situations. AF could be as fast as the D3x or probably faster. In fact the D800 initially focuses quite fast, but then kicks into a refinement stage, probably due to the high resolution, and "refines" for another short time. The line skipping could be removed, there is no 21MP or 24MP which needs that, including the D3x, and most decent lenses are good enough with the D3x.
