I think the D800 is as good as anything out there in the high iso game, and beyond that is just splitting hairs as anything beyond 6400 is generally not going to be used/accepted for work related shots anyway.  I think Nikon hit a hard (and I do mean HARD) home run with that camera.

I disagree. 12800, both on my D3S and D800 is acceptable for indoor sports, where flash isn't allowed in poorly lit venues.

If the D3x is perfect for you, I encourage you to try the Canon 5d3.  You'd miss the pro body layout, but you get a heck of a lot of camera for the money (in comparison) and video.

Not practical, unless you have the money to support a second system. Quality lenses are not cheap.
