I think that's a great camera strategy. Since I acquired the D800's, I shoot them 80%+ of the time. Still not satisfied with the system if something is booking it, but any other time, it's my choice. Pretty sure the D810 will only reinforce that.
On the Mustang subject, thanks, it's very easy to let a lifelong dream and emotion cloud that decision, but the background reality exists. My friend and client in East Texas, who can afford to buy every significant warbird in the world (I mean all of them!) told me not too long ago that he was really tempted to buy a 51, but he was scared to death it would kill him. He dropped 1.2 on a beautiful Tucano. It's odds, all odds, I'm not worried about mastering a 51, the T-6 removed that doubt a long time (and several seat cushions) ago. The problems come in with an unforgiving wing, and a 70 year old airframe/engine. If it quits on you, although some have survived the scenario, you are in a tough spot that is likely to be your demise. Just tossing a dart at the wall, that could very well have been what took place in Durango yesterday. I don't care if I've got someone as seasoned as Gunny in the second seat, when that happens, it's going to be very dicey and people are likely to get hurt. Bottom line, I think I'd like to fly something a little less stellar, for a much longer time. 45 years of shooting and being friends with some of the best sticks that will ever live, has taught me some irrefutable lessons, paid for with a number of their lives.
