DPR, with batt:

Very nice, actually, only 120 more than D7000, which is 780g with batt.

Maybe that's why some people are saying D800 feels like a D7000.

No, it feels more like a D300 but somewhat shorter in width but slightly higher.

The build quality is above the D7000, with thicker rubber and a more comfortable grip, not as narrow as on the D7000. The ergonomics are great.
