I am delighted with my new d800. For portraits and parties the extra pixels are useful, because you can make several individual shots out of one group, while still having enough pixels for each.

For birding, you can catch a bird in fllight much more easily, or you can use the
DX mode.

But the d800 is so much more than just a lot of pixels. The AF for birds in flight is amazing. The image quality generally is also amazing.

I would have difficulty thinking of anything more I want.

With 24mp, the dx mode would only be about 10mp, instead of nearly 16mp with the 36mb sensor.
