Re: Is a D800 worth $6k?

well it wouldn't be $3000 if you sold your D7000 and your DX lenses.  Of course, you will have to get longer glass to compensate for the greater field of view, especially if you shoot wildlife and sports.  Aside from that, the D800 is not a good camera for action photography, the motor drive is too slow.  I know a lot of people use the D800 for action photography and with the 51 point metering system, 3D tracking works in your favor somewhat compensating for the slow frame rate.

good luck,
