In a 20x16 inch print to 1600 ISO it is near impossible to tell the difference between a D7100 and a D800 image without looking at the EXIF data.

Step up to a 30 inch wide print and the D800 wins.

Obviously the D7100 is smaller and lighter than a D800, and if you never print seriously big your D800 has little advantage for you.

I suggest you consider upgrading your current DX body to a D7100 and shoot the D7100 alongside the D800. This is the way I work.

We all aspire to take great photos but may always achieve this perhaps due to a lack of application, a lack of knowledge, or even a lack of talent.
The best photographers probably work quite hard at their photography.
