Add an "s" after 4 and you are all the way there. 2% landscape - you don't need 800

Good point

But I might be using teleconverters more than I'd like to with a D4s. I mean purely from that perspective and ignoring all other clear benefits of the D4/s, 16mp on FX compared to 24mp on the D7100 is going to be something i will notice (and potentially be frustrated with)? That is really my only dilemma here!

Well I have D4, 800e, 700 and 7100. Af wise best to worse. D4 D7100 D700 D800e.  And if you're shooting birds that's important.  And in my limited use of the 7100 I would give the nod to the D4 for image quality.  More than just the number of pixels at play here.  But I thought you were comparing 800 to D4?  Why is your D7100 back in the mix?  Yoo can't get around poor buffer with BIF. And D800/e maxes out pretty quickly too

Just sayin' and it's obviously your choice, but for BIF and money not being a problem, the D4S is the one with D4 next.
