It would be nice if I did not have to open the lens up to focus and then stop down to shoot but the D800 is worth it.

But that's what I've been doing for years, long before the D800 - in my view it's actually the only safe way to ensuring that the critical part of the image is exactly in focus. Maybe this is why I don't think there is much wrong with it, because all I get are stunningly sharp images out of it when I use it...
