The D3s and the D800 are VERY different cameras. When I *need* my D3s, the D800 simply won't do. I shoot 80% sports and 20% fashion/portrait, etc. The D800 will see sports use for me, but my D3s will still be my primary tool for a lot of that shooting. Especially at night or indoors.
At this point, I am really on the fence about whether to sell a D3s or keep them both. Much of that will be determined by the ISO performance of the D800.
