Re: From D800E user need advice

Welcome (finally!) to the forums, Harry.

I bought my D800 in 2012, and I'm still happy with the results, although there are times I would like a new camera.  Like Thierry said, it's a good idea to wait if you can.  Nikon is going to continue to develop DSLRs, at least in the short term.  There will likely be at least one last "pull all the stops" body that will check all the boxes you may wish to have.  If not, the D850 and Z7II are still very good options.

The key factor, of course, is lenses.  If you were like me, you may already have a rather good set of AFS and AF-D or older lenses that work well, but changing to a Z body would be restrictive (unless perhaps you plan to also adapt from other mounts).
