Why am I not seeing a noticeable difference in the photo quality being posted versus what can be achieved from other DSLR's ? I have a D800 on order but beginning to wonder if it's worth $3,000 compared to my current D300. I don't take that many photos in poor lighting conditions. Video would be a plus, I guess. I have just been unable to say "WOW". I don't mean to be critical but I would like to hear some candid opinions on this subject. Where are the "WOW" photos ?

I second one of the earlier posters. If you can afford it, but the damn thing and enjoy it. You won't be disappointed.

For what it's worth, the difference between images from my D800 and my D7000 is dramatic, really. I can't speak to the d300 though.
