Not my way of shooting for sure... But on the other hand - I can get a clear difference handholding with good zooms (trinity), even with 24-120 F4 between D800 and D800E... Honest!

If you're handholding, using studio flash, and/or using a zoom, save your money; the D810 won't give you materially more sharpness.

Well, this is what I was thinking too... D800 was pretty good focusing on static and slow moving subjects for me (no LV) and being sharper - D800E (replaced D600) will be a great companion for my old D800 when I need extra sharp nature shots... For studio - I will be using D800 for sure because of better moire handeling, but for everything else - D800E... (For my primary work though - Weddings - D3s bodies are still untouchable...
