Unless there is something specific the D810 does that the D800e doesn't do that you need for the kind of photography you do then just roll with the D800e and buy a lens.

I agree with others that either the D850 or perhaps a Z7 would be the upgrade path, but you just got the D800e at a good price, so don't worry, be happy, go shoot some photos. Shooting photos always solves GAS.

D800e is a fine camera. Go ahead and wear it out.

When I upgraded from the D800E to the D810 one of the key reasons (for me) was Grp AF. I forget what else was improved on the D810. But for me the Grp AF was the big one.

When I upgraded to a D810, it was to accompany my D800e on the other shoulder, replacing a D700.

When using both of them back-to-back, the faster frame rate was immediately apparent on the D810.  (I use both gripped with large battery).

In specific situations, Group AF has been very useful (bif), and base 64 ISO dynamic range has been much appreciated when post-processing underwater images.  The D810 is just more polished all-around.  Makes the D800e feel a bit like a pre-production run.

As for image quality differences, other than the ISO 64/100 thing, both have been exactly the same for me.
