Re: A wise move John...

1.2x crop mode. I shoot action mostly in that mode with my D800. I even like the small area outside the frame in the viewfinder for action.

While it looks like you are using the camera not to its full potential, I have learned that this is not how I really experience it. It really is quite great to chance from reasonable fast action (D800S should have 7FPS and be ok) to high resolution with one flick on the control wheel. It is really 2 cameras in one body.

My biggest problem is that i often need to go to DX mode (longest lens is 400mm and at the moment I have no intention to through more money to Nikon) and that really is only an emergency use option. With your lenses you should do much better with the D800 - D800S.
