D800? Total Overkill!
In reply to xador, Jan 10, 2013

To me, for your purposes, the D800 seems total overkill. The D800 is a camera, which is best operated on a tripod. Due to the massive resolution you need to work much more carefully to get images that this sensor is capable to do. Handheld photography might not give the quality you expect.

Photographing your kids likely means some action, so a small, lightweight camera, as the OM-D is, is more beneficial than a megapixel monster, which is more targeted to fine art photographers than family documenters.
