Welcome!

You will have much fun with the D800. It is a surprisingly user friendly and nice camera for casual everyday use, and also a immensely rewarding camera when you shoot carefully and deliberately.

I shot with a S5 Pro for a couple of months back when it was new, really liked it for skin tones and portrait work. But I am pretty sure the D800 will feel like a proper upgrade, in so many ways - viewfinder, screen, overall speed, autofocus and then those gorgeous raw files who can take a massive amount of abuse in post without falling apart.

Yeah, I definitely think you will have fun
