Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback to my question. It was excellent. I know I don't really need a new camera. I'm 72 and photography is just a hobby.

72 and can afford it? Buy it.

At the pixel level it is better than the d300

So IMHO, the dx crop on the d800 is better than the d300

So it will be better for your application but maybe not as huge as you would like

If all you do is shoot birds at 500mm I would be tempted to see what shakes out with the d400 or d7100, in other words wait until fall

On the other and, if you shoot all kinds of things,well, buy the d800 now if you can. It is a definite upgrade to the d300 and don't see anything on the near horizon that will be better for the price
