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.

If you apply that logic, then every time you get a new car for, let's say $30,000 for arguments sake, you have to factor in the cost of a second car for your wife and then it is really $60,000 due to it being one each. Is that car then worth $60,000 when it is really only $30,000? I mean, everything you buy would be double when you look at it that way.
