Re: D4 or D800E for birds?

Andy, excellent bif website.  Were all of these taken with the d800e?  I have not fully tested out my new used d800e for bif, but af seems very good.  I think maybe my now sold d4 was a little better, but the lack of cropping ability was the negative side of the d4.  I usually go to Federal and State Refuges and usually not very close to the subjects so need the extra pixels.  I use the battery grip with aa batteries and will purchase a d4 battery and charger to get me 6 frames per second, plenty for bif.
