Because i use them for different purposes? Because the D800E is good, but not great at higher ISOs? Because a lot of the time I want to use a smaller, lighter camera that has a good range of lenses. Put it this way, the D800E sucks for street and candid shooting.

Just curious - why would you say it sucks?  Unless you're mainly shooting at high ISO's, this seems like a silly statement to make?

At lower ISO's (below ISO 800 and esp. at base ISO), the D800 has no match for overall IQ - resolution (and croppability), DR, and color, etc..  Now if you qualified your statement as for available light NIGHT street and candid, the D800E is not the best choice, I'd agree (but it would still be wrong to say it sucks!).
