Mentioned to my wife several days ago that I'd like to upgrade my D7000 to a D800 which led to the "how much is it" question. To my amazement she said sure, but I get the same amount "no strings attached". So the question is if the D800 is worth $6,000 to upgrade from a D7000 that I have been very happy with. I have a decent assortment on FX lens so that won't be an issue. Mainly shoot wildlife and sports.

I  think, it is a fair deal. Your deserves to have some fun in lieu of your new toy. Whether it is worth or not depends on the amount of enjoyment you are going to derive from the new toy. The picture quality is not going to go up suddenly.

Comes down to your priorities and what you value the most.
