Re: D800- my experience

Commenting only on the areas where I have personally observed anything noteworthy, I generally need to AF Fine Tune multiple times to avoid leaving something on the table. And in my limited experience shooting soccer, the buffer is not large enough for my use. YMMV.   Note that I don't shoot crop however.

It may be that D800e, while it's working out as a great choice for most of the stuff we do ourselves, may not be optimum for your projected use. At 50% sports and general purpose use I suspect I might personally be looking for a good used D3s.

"Sick cultures show a complex of symptoms such as you have named...but a dying culture invariable exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners is more significant than a riot."
This symptom is especially serious in that an individual displaying it never thinks of it as a sign of ill health but as proof of his/her strength. ...Friday, it is too late to save this culture--this worldwide culture... Therefore we must now prepare the monasteries for the coming Dark Age. Electronic records are too fragile..."
--Robert A. Heinlein in "Friday"
