As we all know D800 will create 75MB RAW files.

will : yes. must : no. You might wish to consider lossless compressed RAW, which are likely half the file size with no difference in image quality.

Sure, that's an idea, that has been playing through my head.

But comming from Canon to Nikon I have no idea how 'fast' or 'slow' these write speeds are using lossless compressed NEF files.

Each photo may in worst case already take up to 2 second to write.
