Pretty nice effort, but I just don't understand how you don't list the D800's viewfinder as a (large) advantage over the rectangular viewfinder of the D610.

Both have a 100% viewfinder.

So?

I just don't understand the advantage,besides the shutter lever.

This explains it pretty good:

Have you looked through both eyepieces? I much prefer the round one on the D800 (and my D700).

A 100% viewfinder doesn't mean they look the same. The D7100 has a 100% view but the viewfinder is much smaller and has tunnel vision.

That said, my D600, D4, and D3 all have equal viewfinders to me so I assume the D800 would be the same as my D4.
