If you want a snapshot camera, buy a point and shoot.

And if the O/P wants a versatile camera for more sophisticated photography and occasionally be used as a point and shoot the D800e can certainly do all of that.

Thank you for that! I didn't want to bore anyone, but I was a professional photographer for 10yrs, and have ben an enthusiastic amateur for another 25yrs since a career change into IT. My photographic interests include landscapes, portraits, wildlife, travel, and now that I have a toddler running about at home, I'd like to record his growing up too - all on the best single camera I can afford. The D800 seems like the best fit for most of my requirements, but I need to make sure it's also useful for 'snatch and grab' shots, indoors, in available light.

Hi Al, snatch and grab, indoors, in available light? Oh yeah. I can't think of a better all around camera, period. The IQ is addictive though and the big files and DR make pulling shadows and keeping detail and color a dream. Go for it.
