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.

Do you have  6k of disposable income between you?

If not,  IMHO,  debt  = stain on  a marriage.  Definitely not worth the hassle. However the oopposite is true.  Decisions made together bring you together.

I'm off my soap box now.  

I hope you can go for it!

Best wishes

There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness.' :'!':
