Actually yes, the D3200 or D5200 won't be able to be a D800 when I get to the point where I've earned the right to own a D800.

In what way would a 3200/5200 limit your photography?  Why are you so drawn to FX?  What could you do with a D800 that you can't do with a 3200/5200?  FWIW, I own both a D800 and a D7000 and FX is not always the best tool for the job.

I guess I just don't see the detriment other than cost.  If you're building a rig "greenfield", I can't see a downside to the ability to shoot 1080 video at 30fps, shoot and crop down without loosing resolution, and so on.  As array pricing comes down, I (admitedly its a fairly uninformed guess) would assume DX would be less and less prevalent.  In that case., I like the idea of having FX lenses.

What is the downside beyond the fact that my skill set on day one will not take appropriate advantage of the platform?
