Re: Convince me to buy a D800 (+BHPV question)

I went from a D90 to the D800 a couple of years ago when the D800 first came out, and I have to say that I have NEVER regretted my purchase, not for one second.

You know the answer to your own question since it sounds like you have researched it significantly... go for it!

I also have the 24-70 and 70-200 lens (as well as the 85 f/1.8), and the difference between the D800 and the D90 is night and day. I still use my D90 as my backup body, and tend to take it on vacations since I am paranoid about losing/damaging the D800 (sort of defeats the purpose, eh?), and when I am processing my D90 images, although great shots, they can never compare the D800 for resolution, dynamic range, and image quality.

Can I still take some great shots on the D90 (or you on the D7000)? Of course! Does the D800 excel over the D90? Without doubt!
