Yes, the detail is phenomenal, no doubt, but will the D800 be suitable as well for shooting hand held in low light? Is this camera only for studio/landscape photographers? This is not yet clear to me.

A 22mp camera (possibly the 5D3) with good low-light ability seems more useful to me. Looking forward to see the low-light/high ISO images from the D800 appear.

Here is a 100% crop of a 1D-X ISO 1600 shot, compared with a 100% crop D800 ISO 100 shot.
