I agree with this. Someone pointed out in another forum, that one reason to get a D800 is that it's a D700+/5DmkII combo bolted to a D7000 in one package.
1) in FX, Downsampled to 12 MP ( to match the D700 ) it bests the D700 in noise performance at any given ISO.
2) in DX, or cropped FX, you get D7000 performance and "reach".
3) at low ISOs you get an even better camera for landscapes than the 5D Mk II
It's one heck of a package IMO. About the only negative is the "slow" 4 fps continuous shooting and the file sizes. However, storage is always getting cheaper so that rarely factors in long term.
