Some of us are sports shooter. Even the D700 isn't good enough. It's acceptable at ISO 3200, but some high school stadiums lights are very bad. To freeze a shot at f2.8, I need ISO 6400 which the D3s is quite capable of providing with good dynamic range. I'm moving to D3s, the ultimate shooting machine. Do I need 36 mp ind D800 to 100% crop that special catch? No. Higher burst rate in the D3s is more important to me than more pixels.
