Like?
The IQ of the D600 is really nice right?

Add 2 MPs to that. That's actually a lot of additional resolution when you take into account that the D600's resolution is reduced also. (I'm taking it on faith that you are reporting the corrct number.)

Plus, you get a better camera operationally with the D800.

If we take the Nikons best lens (85/F1.4), DXO reckons that the D800 will only give 3 more MP than the D3x, possibly only 2 MP gap than the D600 which reportedly has a very light AA filter. No numbers for the 800e.

Can this be right? If so what is the constraint? Why are the extra MP not counting for much?

We need the techies on this one!
