I'm sure people will use the D800 for action and they will get great results.

But let's be totally honest here, if any action based photographer out there (sports, wildlife, birds etc) was to choose between the D800 and the D4 for a day's shoot we all know which way it would go.

It's not having a go at the D800, I would probably get one if I did not do action photography. It's just not totally up to the job like the D4 is.

It was not designed to be.

Best wishes,

Well said. It seems like some people take it personally and get offended by the idea that one camera can be better for a specific type of shooting than another. That's the nature of equipment though, one tool isn't going to be the best tool for every job.
