I was trying to save on some weight. I recently had some spinal surgery and found carrying my D3 around gave me lots of problems. It was my wife who suggested getting a smaller camera after the surgery (right around March 15th, just in time for the D800). I jumped on the chance and it has been unreliable when shooting hand held using edge focus points (and like you, I compose using all focus points, quite often edge to edge) It is AMAZING on a tripod using LiveView.

The D4 was not an option because of the size and my D3 I find to still be very reliable, but now I use in mainly for sports photography on a mono pod.
