....then, why did you buy a D800 ?

I shoot weddings and have a d700 and D3s and I convert the files to DNG since I take way over 1000 shots for most weddings.

I can't imagine dealing with files that are 7,8 times each larger than my 12 MP cameras.

The new 810 may be temping for me to finally say good by to my D700 if the features on it are to my liking.

Or I was thinking about a good used D4

Didn't you know that, to get 36 megapixels image, the size of the file would be more than twice the one of a 16 megapixels ? I'm not a matematician, but it seems just logical to me !

You say you're a PRO, hence IMO you should have previously read articles about the D800 and know what to expect, before to buy the camera.....
