If I remember correctly, you previously indicated that you did not think the D800/E was a good sports camera. Has your experience with the camera changed your opinion? Obviously the D4 is better suited for that use due to fps rate and low light qualities. However, I am not able to afford a D4. I do want the D400 as a replacement for my D200 if/when the D400 is produced with pretty much the rumored specs. In the meantime I am considering the D800E as a multi-purpose camera to pretty much replace my D200 (except in those situations where I think I need the extra "reach/composition" capabilities of the DX camera.
I bought one of the defective D800Es and have been waiting to get comfortable that Nikon has fixed the problem. Now that a lower price is rumored to be effective on 12/15 I am probably ready to buy another D800E that will hopefully be trouble free. Now if Crutchfield will just have another double points special for Christmas that will definitely make it an easy choice.
