I seem to recall Michael saying... "I would like faster burst capability for shooting the grandson's baseball and soccer games, and the higher ISO"....

With the D800 and its 36+ mp sensor... the focus will have to be "DEAD ON" ... soccer and baseball games are fast motion sports and the slightest blur is going to show...and show badly...the burst rate of the D800 is only 4fps...as oppossed to the D3s of 9, or the D4 of 10-11...those huge files are going to chew up memory cards fast, an external hard drive is going to be needed to store those files...as for higher ISO... the D3S goes to a 12,800 (not counting the bizarre Hi-3), the D800 only goes to 6400... the D800 again has that mixed storage media issue and if, as he states, he has a lot of extra CF cards, now the alternate media storage is an extra cost...

Again.. if it were me, go with the D3s

Hope this helps
