African safari D800E backup: anything better than D610?

Two D800 bodies, and do not drop them!

Thom Hogan did not say to avoid the D800; he said "do not drop" a D800. Simple enough. Let's not over-complicate what was said.

When working fast, and may be switching quickly between two cameras, I want the bodies to be the same, or at least have the same controls. If working with camera at a time, and "back-up" means a spare body to be kept packed until wanted or needed, identical bodies are  less important, as there will be time for the mind to adjust to different ergonomics and controls.

I wear a badge and pistol, and, primarily with 7D cameras, with 10-22mm and 100mm Macro L lenses, shoot evidentiary images at night, which incorporates elements of portrait, macro, still life, landscape, architecture, PJ, and occasional action. During personal time, I enjoy using both Canons and Nikons.
