So is it a backup, or is it really a supplement? Will you mostly shoot both?

If it's a supplement, I'd definitely get the D800. Then you have both extremes, it has a DX crop that's still got great resolution, but for other photography if you want the 36 mpx you have it, and you already have the D4 for high frame rate, higher ISO, and whenever you don't need such large images.

The D3x is pretty dated, and it's not a good backup if you ever needed high ISo, and it's expensive if your main interest is sensor not the pro body itself. The D600 -- that's why I asked - backup or supplement. Why go part way to high resolution.

Backup... maybe different answer.

PS. I have both D800 and D4 and I use both regularly, they excel at different things.
