"RE: D3S versus D800"

D800 came in today from Amazon. Played with it a little and, as Perrone has pointed it out, it feels a little strange in my hands. I always shot the D300 with the battery grip so this feels small. I'll either get used to it or have to buy the battery grip.

The screen on the back is much brighter/clearer than what I had on the D300.

I don't really have a problem with the change in the switch on the front for the focusing mode and AFC/AFS selection. Not really a big deal to me to push the button and turn the dial. I almost always shoot in AF-S mode so it's pretty much one and done from that aspect. We'll see how the choice of the number of sensors plays out.
