Why on earth would you buy a D800? If all I did was archive online I've just use my IPhone or a good quality PS. I'm sure there's a lot of people out there feeling the same

Hmm, that's seems to overstate your case a bit. Even for Web presentation, there's a lot to be said for the better IQ, available light performance, lens selection and quality, etc. of a DSLR.

Now, whether or not that warrants the 36 megapixels of the D800 and associated potential upgrades to post processing computer gear, I will heartily agree is a valid line of inquiry. I'm waiting to see what Nikon delivers with their much rumored D600. If lacking, a D700 will hold a happy place in my future kit.
