D800 - Any happy users out there?

Hi all,

I'm looking for a new FX body, and i narrowed down my choices to either a used D700 or a D800. The main reason why i'm excluding the D600 is simply ergonomics: I tried the 3 at a local store and my big hands felt much happier with D700/D800 over a D600 (i'm sure it's an excellent camera otherwise).

Anyways, reading through many posts here (and on other sites) one feels that pretty much every D800 user is having issues with focusing (left, right, or both), LCD blackouts, etc.. etc...

If we learn anything from history is that it repeats itself after every new product release, and a subset of users get some problems and get vocal about it, but i'm hoping there are many many more users that are perfectly happy with their D800s and are busy taking pictures out there and just enjoy it ??? If you're one of those please reply to this thread.

Another thing, for people that went from a D700 to a D800 - what's your impression? does the D800 feel slower, less responsive (operation-wise) or is it as snappy? was it worth the upgrade?
