Is a D800 worth $6k?

You guys (and gals) are great!

Thanks for all of the feedback. Given me lots to think about - and a few laughs for my wife and myself. Money's not the issue - more of a value proposition. Been married for 43 years and historically, whenever anything was a bit pricy I had to double the cost (two new bikes, two pairs of hiking boots, two new water skis, yadda). Just never this pricy.

I have been trying a D7100 for about ten days but not sure that's enough of an upgrade. It's definitely an upgrade but mostly in the areas of autofocus, pixels and ergonomics - not high ISO performance or picture IQ. Probably would get more keepers due to the improved autofocus, but lots of my pics end up at higher ISO.

Again, thanks for the comments!
