Let me ask you a question and you may or not may know the answer to this.

Do you find the D800 AF to be at least as good as the D700 AF? If so, then while it may not be as good as the D4....I could live it with it.

I found the D600 inferior in this regard.

I'll start with by saying that for landscape, people pictures or any other general photography the D800 AF works as it should. If I didn't should BIF, I'd probably have zero issues with the 800/e.

But two years ago +/- I started shooting BIF, and in a lot of situations I'm not as close as I should be. Under those conditions, from worst to best, I would pick D800/e, D700, D4. I have the least experience with the D700 and most with the 800 out of the three.  But I keep going back to the D700 and recently bought another one with the MB-D10 grip and D3S battery and charger. So I'll probably hang on to this D700.
