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.

Well if you mostly shoot wildlife get ready to drop a lot on lenses as you will not have a crop factor. If I were to shoot mostly wildlife I think I would go back to Olympus. I consider the D800 more of a landscape camera.
