I have been shooting Nikon a long time and the D800 is the first camera available that allows me to shoot indoor basketball. Whether I have focus issues or not, I don't know, but I do know the camera is intuative (sic) enough to capture the images without motion blur (1/400), minimally distracting noise, at f2.8, whilst locking on and tracking fast and erratic subjects in full, 36 mp images. It also gives me the freedom to pull shadows without banding and has reasonable headway to recover blown highlights with minimal effort (something I could not do with my D70, D200 or D300).

Well, D700 has been around for along time, and it is arguably more suitable for shooting action. Not to discredit you experiences, but I don't believe D800 is breaking any new ground in sports shooting. It wasn't intended to.
