Seems to me that this is a sophisticated camera for a sophisticated shooter. While it can be used for snapshots probably, this is not what it is designed for. It will excel when major cropping is needed or when printed VERY large. For what you are talking about you will be much better served with a D700 or maybe one of the Sony mirrorless cameras. I wonder how many people will be buying a D800 for having 4x6s made at Costco. A mind-boggling waste of both money and technology.
