I decided to go ahead. I want to get my D800 from Calumet Photo because I've had good experience with them in the past. Also, if I encounter any problems, I can just stop by their store in Chicago.

Meanwhile I am reading Thom Hogan's D800 guide.

I think I can make do with the camera, the 24 - 70 mm lens, an extra battery, a 64 Gb compact flash card, a card reader, and a cable release, Since I expect to crop to 4:5 aspect ratio, I figure a factor of four is right for comparing FX focal lengths with 4 x 5 focal lengths. So 24 - 70 comes close to encompassing my view camera with 90 mm, 150 mm, and 300 mm lenses. It might make sense at a future date to get the 14-24 mm lens, and eventually perhaps the 70 - 200 mm lens,

Can anyone think of anything else I might need now?

Unfortunately Calumet doesn't have the 24-70 mm lens in stock now, so I will have to wait.
