At ISO 12,800 the D800 has serious magenta and cyan blotching problems, this is not simple noise.

And no resampling does not remove noise, it makes the photo (and the noise) smaller.

For someone who claims to own a D800, you don't seem real familiar with it. It's a plenty good camera but has significant problems above ISO 6400, in fact lower.

The D800 never seems to have the dynamic range of the D610 or D4/Df either.

Finally got ahold of the DF and am relieved that I was not Wowed! Regardless of its capabilities just felt no love for the body- small grip, jutting edges, crammed busy/clumsy dial layout. I did like the sound of the shutter but other than that found it lacking. No finesse or tactile joy!
My first D4 had the dreaded left/AF issue so I would also be hesitant to buy another Nikon using the same sensor that could be plagued with the same issue.

This has happened twice to my camera & after the battery recall I had hoped it was due to overheating but guess not- once I had to remove the battery and once just restarted- what a drag!
Thanks for the update!
