So, where does that "36mp benefit" leaves us? I really don't know. For a guy like me, I believe backwards.

22 - 24 mp is my personal maximum.

Please note, I do plan to upgrade to the D800 this year, but I'm totally sure I'll always convert the files in Lightroom to a lesser resolution, for the above reasons.

So the D800 may be Heaven sent for many folks.

But for others, like me, it's just the "only" upgrade path we have, but not exactly what we wanted.

Why don't you go D4 then?  I prefer that to the D800E for portraits for the reason of too high a res. for skin.
