Re: Is the D800 not for sport??

Wouldn't a D7000 have yielded something similar, smaller and cheaper as size seems to be a concern.

But I agree I'm leaning toward a D800 over a D4 upgrade

I agree, but there are two issues:

1. To carry a longer zoom lense is just too much. I used a monopod with the 70-200mm.

2. Sometimes the subject is just too far and yet by cropping heavily you still get a nice picture with reasonable details for posting on Facebook or similar web forums.
