I got my D800e in mid-august and have had a D3s for 3 years. So far, I am finding the low light, high ISO capabilities of the D3s are better, while the dynamic range of the D800e is superior.

I haven't nailed down exactly the breaking point, but the D3s is across the board in higher ISO.

For landscapes and portraits, I'd grab the d800e (although the Portrait picture control is not to my liking).

For weddings in dimly lit venues, I prefer the D3s, and I would also choose that for sports.

But am am beginning to wonder if I need to be more selective about when I need a 45MB file. SAS is getting to be a factor.
