Is the D800 worth it today?
Feb 6, 2014

HI all, I am looking to upgrade into a full frame camera later this month. I have been researching like crazy and I really like what the D800 has to offer. I know it's getting a bit long in the tooth, so my question is; is it still relevant today? 36 mp is alot, I know. But, if you were buying a new full frame camera this year, would the d800 be on the list?

Background info. I shoot landscapes, events, low light, weddings, and portraits. I will be getting the 70-200 2.8 vrII and the 24-70 2.8 at the same time of the camera, so my base lenses will be covered. I shoot mainly with my F3 and I have a d5100 with a slew of lenses that wont work on full frame. I do have the 50mm 1.8g that will work, and if I want I can use the DX feature on the 800 to use my other lenses. No worries there though. The d5100 will be my back up/reach camera.

Any help/advise would be greatly appreciated.
