I did exactly that- bought the D800 while waiting for the D400. I had two D300 bodies and love them but wished for more. While waiting for the D400 to come out, Nikon released the D800. It just blew me away. The images are just so sharp that if I didn't have a bunch of pro lens I would have had to run out and see what this camera was capable of.
But, as much as I love the camera it does lack one thing that I need. I am strictly an amateur and I love to shoot air shows and wild life - mainly birds. For that I need a high frame rate, which the D800 does not have and I don't think the D600 has either. I'm talking 8 fps at a minimum. If the D400 ever comes out and has a high frame rate, I will buy one and sell my last D300. Until then I will keep and love my D300.
