Thanks Bill, looking forward to your results. I too am drawn toward the the high pixel count of the D800 but not too sure if I want to pay for it with reduced AF performance and 50% of the ISO performance of the D4. These two items are outstanding issues with me.
Just to be clear, I don't think the AF preformance of D800E is worse than D4, but the shutter lag time does seem longer. I have tried to look up "shutter lag" for the two cameras, but I have struggled to find them to include in this post. As I understand it (and I could be wrong) the two cameras use the same AF modual, so performance should be similar. The one "speeed option you can use on the D800 (E) is the 1.2X crop mode which gets you 24MP at 5 frames per second. It does noticably reduce lag to second shot, but still seems a little less effective at reducing responsive time to first shot.
