I'll answer the question directly and literally: Yes.

If it had been necessary to pay $6k for my d800e I would have done so.

Had I stumbled across a magic lamp, rubbed it, and then been asked by the genie if I'd rather have a d4 ($6k) or a d800e, I'd take the d800e.  The d800e sensor is that good, I don't need the speed of the d4, and I don't want the extra size and weight.

+1 If you don't need the FPS of the D4 the D800 can't be beat.  It has pretty much all the same features, at least the important ones, of the D4 but is smaller and has the best sensor in any 35mm format camera currently on the market.
