I mostly shoot Natural Light Portraits and Landscapes.  Glass, my portrait baby is the Nikon 85mm 1.4 I also shoot with the 50 1.4 and the 70-200 VR.

I heart Bokeh!

What I plan to gain from the new technology in the camera?

Being a natural light guy, sometimes I would like to bump up the ISO a bit more than I feel comfortable with on the D700.

I would like more Dynamic Range than my D700 gives me.

Everyone seams to say stuff like the D810 is "Magical", and give it all the praise in the world. Especially for what I do, Landscapes and Portraits.

But my biggest concern is that I spend the next year obsessing over a "possible" replacement and wast my days surfing DP review and other blogs instead of shooting.

Years ago someone posted here "How come there are not as many Girls on DP Review as Boys?"

Someone answered "Because they are busy shooting and not wasting there time here."
