If your cameras get a fair amount of (ab)use the D4 is the clear choice, just from the build quality.

I could not agree more. Just sent my D3s in for shutter repair and the last good picture was number 972,000. That's a lot of clicks and the D4 is probably better. As a professional shooter, you will need a backup camera. Why not get both The D4 and D800? I can still remember like it was yesterday my brand new D3 failing on the second weekend out several years ago, so you just never know and must always be ready for equipment failure.
