Re: Is the D800 not for sport??

I compared my D7000 with my new D800 with the 70-200 vr11 and the D7000 was just as good on static shots.

Focus system on the D7000 was no problem for me at the racetrack before I got the D800.

As far as FPS goes, you can get 5 at 1.2 crop and I think 6 at 1.5 crop with a grip.

Since this fella cropped anyway, the 1.5 isn't a deal breaker.

Of course you would not buy the D800 if sports was your primary activity but it can certainly do a credible job when necessary assuming the shooter has some skill and a good eye and reflexes.
