Re: Why?

I jumped from Canon to Nikon to get the D800 mainly for the dynamic range and its effect on black parts of images.  Black areas from the 5Dmkii had an underlying purple grid which became apparent if you tried to up the exposure in post.  The D800 in incredible in the way you can pull up areas with no real degradation.  If this is what you are interested in, go for the D800 and a couple of primes as a start.  I did this and have gradually built up my Nikon side to a full kit.

The negative I perceive is a lack of  the reasonably priced L longer lenses - 400mm f5.6, 70-300L etc.  This is a problem and up till now I am keeping my 7D and those lenses.

Hope this helps.
