You may very well be correct. I do think my D800E is better than my previous (1st generation) D800 but could still be better, after having tried the new D4s. Having said that, I would love my D800E to have the same AF as the new D4s and I'd happily pay a premium for it. In fact, I don't see why we can't opt to pay for performance upgrades like a modular system because apparently, the AF module is the same for all of them, just that they use different algorithms. I'd be happy yo ay for an algorithm upgrade.

You would think an algorithm change could be dealt with in a firmware update? Not that i am very up with it when it comes to such technical software things.

I have not read of this rumored D800S? How likely is it, and when was the rumor saying that it could be a possiblity? I am looking to purchase within the next 1-2 months. I could wait a little bit longer but if this rumor turns into one like the D400, I will certainly NOT wait

I made mention of D4S in the second reply in this thread. Google NikonRumors and D4S.  50% change, D4S AF, 6 fps with grip.  ++. Think it could replace all my bodies
