I can tell you Dave that I rented a d800 for a week, shot a long lens with it for birds and to me it was just too touchy and slow for this type of shooting. The d4 is not so touchy and it will melt in your hands, larger than the d800 but a lot more comfortable for me. I'm not a professional, but shot a wedding 6 months ago in a dark church using mostly a Nikon 85mm f1.4d lens. They did not want flash so I was stuck with using speeds of around an iso of 3200 to get sharp images. Focus not a problem and what little noise there was processed out in post processing.


Larry,If I had an 85mmf1.4, I would be pretty happy with a D700 at 3200iso. Is the D4 so much better that its worth twice (say) the cost of 70-200mm f2.8 VRII which i can use with my D700?
