What's the issue with the D800 sensor though? There is none really. Detail, high iso, dynamic range. It's all there top of the bill. It's the best period. The D800 IS a true successor. Who would complain about images being too detailed?? I'm sorry but this doesn't make sense to me. If you can afford a DSLR on a level like this, there should be no problem investing in a pc/laptop system with 8gb's of ram and a TB of storage to handle those RAWS.

And absolutely no! Don't leave video out!! Why? It's not getting in the way of picture quality. FF dslr's provide awesome video quality. It's not for nothing D800's are being used in the production of "Dexter"...

To do weddings I would need many / multiple terabyte drives for 36MP Raws, at 20 weddings a year and about 1000 photos per wedding, and larger files would take possibly 30 percent longer to adjust and process as a loose estimate (possibly?). I am keeping my D700 for now, but waiting for a D750 for 16-24MP sensor.
