Re: Which should I go for: D800 or D800E?

I am in the same boat, kinda, as you.  I get my next "bonus" on Dec. 29th and will be picking up a new Nikon.  Currently I have the D7100 and the same glass as you, except I have the 105 g version.  Now I could either get a used D800E and a 24-70 Nikon and Tamron 70-200, or get a new D810 and just the Nikon 24-70.  I know that I would be paying about a $1000 more for the D810, but I am debating if having the Nikon warranty is worth it.  Also because of recommendations from here and elsewhere I have decided to avoid grey market as I have heard that Nikon USA won't touch it should something happen.  This too is costing a big premium, but I would rather pay the money then have a brick that can't be fixed.
