Once you have a pro body like the D200/300, not having those physical controls will feel like a step backwards.

Secondly, the 900g D800 isn't that much heavier than your 830g D200, so frankly I'd not worry about it. In fact, the D800 weighs less than the D300s so count yourself lucky!

In some respects, I found going from a D80 to be a bigger leap when going to a D300s than moving from the D300s to the D800E. Why? Again, the pro body and its infinitely customizable controls and instant access to key features rather than spending all my time looking at the screen and fiddling with menus.

As far as files go, my ancient Mac Pro eats them up with no issue. Of course, it helps to have a decent graphics card so the memory can tile nicely.

Best of luck.
