What would Cartier-Bresson and Doisneau shoot with today?

Interesting that you know what dead people would use today. You have some sort of contact with the dead?

So you're assuming everyone on this planet who buys a DSLR is not a going to use it outside of street photography, travel or PJ?

Yes. The D800 is the apex for this month until some other manufacturer does a one up on it.

You guessed it: a good point & shoot.

Of the 4,000 pics of street photography I just took, it'll be interesting to see how many are misfocussed and/or misexposed despite using a 5DII with 35L and 85 1.8.

For travel, PJ and street photography, smaller is wiser. The D800 is not smaller and wiser (except maybe for the DR feature - a feature, which can be implemented in the smallest of cameras anyway.) It's as bulky and complicated as ever.
