Good Morning Wrei,
I'm with Ya. I think you would love the D800 for most things (slow moving to stationary), but it's not an air show camera. The !DX is an incredible camera for fast subjects, but kind of pricey if you're not making a living with it.
I've been hard on Canon, mostly for not stepping up to the plate, announcing and delivering, but the truth is, I could wrap up the next five years of my pro shooting career with exactly what I have in my cases, and be perfectly happy. I'm just one of those guys that is always looking for the next best thing that will help me produce an incrementally better product. I'm in a different situation than many photographers, and I'm thankful to The Good Lord for that, in that my equipment generally pays for itself in a matter of days/weeks, so I don't have to give upgrading much thought. Who would have thought that a $2,900,00 Nikon would have energized Zim and me to the point that it has? One can never get too comfortable with the status quo.
That said, the D800 would not have captured this shot. As I have said before, they're all just hammers, just different types of very expensive hammers.
